Meulensteen and Amani Olu are pleased to host The Art Book Club and guests in a conversation about MyWays (Ways Books) by Rita McBride in conjunction with the exhibition The Arrow that Quits the Bow.
The Art Book Club, comprised of ten New York artists, is hosting its August meeting at Meulensteen to discuss their current reading MyWays, edited by Rita McBride and David Gray. Pulling together numerous artists, writers, and cultural thinkers to contribute “chapters,” all of which are set in the visual art world, MyWays culminates as an accidental novel that subverts our traditional ideas of narrative and literary genre while satirizing the sacred institutions of art and industry. Following the discussion, guests are invited to create a publication through Pilot Press...
The Art Book Club is a group of artists based in New York City who convene regularly to host member studio visits and to discuss art related texts. The club includes artists Inna Babaeva, Gina Beavers, Stacy Fisher, Amanda Friedman, Elizabeth Hirsch, Fran Holstrom, Saira McLaren, Carolyn Salas, Emily Weiner, and Letha Wilson. http://artbookclub.wordpress.
