Description


At apexart's Double Take reading series, poets, novelists, editors, and artists are invited to create and share an original work in response to a single, open-ended prompt, in this instance: Proof. As a result, apexart audiences experience a one-of-a-kind evening of stories and reflections.

Featuring contributions from:

Anselm Berrigan

Joanna Ebenstein

Regan Good

Dawnie Walton

Organized by Albert Mobilio

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP encouraged.

Refreshments and light snacks will be provided.

Anselm Berrigan is the author of eight books of poetry, most recently Something for Everybody, published by Wave Books in 2018. He is the Poetry Editor for The Brooklyn Rail, and works with writers, visual artists, and composers at Bard's interdisciplinary mfa program. Recent endeavors include a neo-benshi mash-up of John Ashbery's poetry & the film Starship Troopers, giving painter Marley Freeman a bunch of titles for her recent exhibition at Karma, and writing poems at work while appearing to be taking notes.

Joanna Ebenstein is a Brooklyn-based writer, curator, photographer and graphic designer. She is the creator of the Morbid Anatomy blog, library and event series, and was cofounder and creative director of the recently shuttered Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn. Her books include Death: A Graveside Companion, The Anatomical Venus, The Morbid Anatomy Anthology (with Colin Dickey) and Walter Potter’s Curious World of Taxidermy (with Dr Pat Morris). She works regularly with such institutions as The Wellcome Collection and Amsterdam's Vrolik Museum, and her writing and photography have been published and exhibited internationally. Her work explores the intersections of art and medicine, death and culture, and the objective and subjective. She was also an apexart International Fellow in 2011.

Regan Good attended Barnard College and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop where she was a Maytag Fellow. She is the author of two books of poems, The Atlantic House and most recently, The Needle. She is currently a Contributing Editor for Interim Magazine.

She has been a MacDowell Colony fellow (2015) and a Tin House Scholar (2017), and is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop (MFA, 2018). Previously, she has worked as an executive-level editor for magazine and multimedia brands including Essence, Entertainment Weekly, Getty Images, and LIFE. Her fiction has been featured on Poets & Writers’ “Ampersand” podcast and as part of “Let’s Play: Imagination, Intuition, and Black Creativity,” an interdisciplinary exhibit of Afrofuturist art at Oakland’s Pro-Arts Gallery.

Albert Mobilio is the recipient of a Whiting Award, a MacDowell Fellowship, and an Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant. His work has appeared in Harper's, Hambone, Black Clock, BOMB, Cabinet, Open City, Paris Review Daily, and Tin House.
