A still from Lossless #2, Rebecca Baron and Doug Goodwin, 2008

This evening brings together four writers and two filmmakers whose work investigates the nature of perception and articulation. The writers include Wayne Koestenbaum, presenting material from The Anatomy of Harpo, his forthcoming opus about Harpo Marx, muteness, and compulsive speech; Eileen Myles, celebrating her new collection of “travel essays on art” titled The Importance of Being Iceland; CA Co­nrad, whose recent book of poems, The Book of Frank, conjures a universe that is­ “horrific, magical, and glistening”; and Maggie Nelson whose new book Bluets is a prose meditation on the color blue, beauty, pleasure, and pain. Throughout, Rebecca Baron and Douglas Goodwin will be screening films from their “Lossless” series, a collection of digital disruptions and deconstructions of existing films that proposes a novel set of possibilities for art and technology.
