Overview

DANCE — MIGUEL GUTIERREZ by Ishmael Houston-Jones
Ishmael Houston-Jones performs in Gutierrez’s And lose the name of action—a work partly inspired by the Spiritualists that premieres at the Walker Art Center this fall and will be an offering of BAM’s Next Wave Festival. Gutierrez tells Houston-Jones why he prefers not to cast skinny dancers in their twenties.

ART — HAIM STEINBACH by Peter Schwenger
By dedicating its fall season to Haim Steinbach, the Artist’s Institute of Hunter College offers a second look at the artist’s work and the opportunity to consider the relation of objects to human subjectivity, their arrangement as a language, and the physicality of text.

THEATER — AMY HERZOG by Carolyn Cantor
Cantor will be directing Amy Herzog’s The Great God Pan at Playwrights Horizons this season and tells us how “Herzog draws you into the lives of people … who are passionate, interesting, and unfailingly honest. Without any manipulation, Herzog’s characters tug at your heart. She writes lines that make you want to be an actor just for the opportunity to say them.”

MUSIC — SIX ORGANS OF ADMITTANCE by Sir Richard Bishop
Drag City has just issued Ascent, the new Six Organs release. The band’s Ben Chasny has found inspiration in sci-fi, Bachelard’s concept of reverie, chapels to the Virgin Mary, and—why not—German gay porn films. Here he talks shop with fellow member of the supergroup Rangda, whose Formerly Extinct is also just out from the Chicago-based label.

LITERATURE — SUSANNA MOORE by Kurt Andersen
Susanna Moore’s seventh novel, The Life of Objects, takes readers to Berlin during the Second World War. Fellow novelist Kurt Andersen writes, “Her fiction uniquely combines tart, unflinchingly clear-eyed social observation; a kind of dreamy second sight; and deep compassion.”

LITERATURE — JAIME MANRIQUE by Edith Grossman
One of the characters in Manrique’s new novel, Cervantes Street, is the man who despised Miguel de Cervantes and wrote a faux sequel of Don Quixote, part one, before the real part two was finished. Manrique talks about the entanglement of fact and fiction with Edith Grossman, Cervantes’s celebrated translator.

ART — LUCY RAVEN by Jason Simon
Following the technology and labor behind the moving image has taken Lucy Raven from copper mines in Nevada to ingot smelters in China, and, recently, to Mumbai, where 2-D Hollywood films are painstakingly converted to 3-D releases. With Jason Simon she discusses her new project for the Hammer Museum.

ART — JOSIAH McELHENY by Gregg Bordowitz
McElheny’s glass-based projects explore the unrealized potential of modernist and utopian visions through allusion and reconstruction. They resemble
staged séances where the deceased converse with the living—one such dialogue with German expressionist writer Paul Scheerbart is at the core of McElheny’s forthcoming exhibition at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
