Max Schumann Exhibit Opening at Taxter & Spengemann 11/19
Max Schumann cut his teeth in that moment and on that end of the political spectrum, consorting with such critical culture brokers as Bread and Puppet Theater, Paper Tiger Television, The Cheap Art Collective and Printed Matter. It is from this fevered brow that he springs, but as these radical politics are a birthright and second nature there is also another generational layer steeped in critique and Deconstructionism-- -a cool detachment, a ready laugh, a sense of fatalism and an attraction to the knowing cynicism of Punk and the nihilistic gore/bodycount of heavy metal. Schumann's extensive knowledge of the machinations of global power structures breezes past the Logic of Late Capitalism and confronts the reality of Early Doom. (read the story...)

'Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers Spring' Exhibition at The New York Botanical Garden, 5/1-6/13
During her lifetime, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) was better known as a gardener than as a poet. Plants and flowers significantly influenced her poetry and other writings, most of which were not published until after her death. The New York Botanical Garden's multi-venue exhibition, Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers, will illuminate Dickinson's life and work, the connections that exist between her life and poems, and her study and love of flowers and gardens. Dickinson's poems have become an integral part of the American literary canon, yet the fundamental impact that plants and flowers had on her poetry is little known by the public. From May 1 through June 13, the Botanical Garden's exhibition will reveal this new perspective on one of the greatest Romantic poets of the Victorian era, immersing visitors in the garden, life, and poems of Emily Dickinson in contemporary, fresh ways.
