Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
There will be readings. There will be ranting. There will be ruminations. We’re very excited to announce our first ever (free) event at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in Soho — come join us next Tuesday, June 23, for Hyperallergic IRL.
Our lineup for the evening is fantastic. We’ll have a poetry reading from Hyperallergic Weekend Editor John Yau; contributors Marisa Crawford and Ryan Wong will read pieces that are among our favorites from the blogazine from the past year; staff writer Allison Meier will share a story on art and cemeteries; plus appearances by many of the members of our Hyperallergic team: Thomas Micchelli, Hrag Vartanian, Jillian Steinhauer, Benjamin Sutton, Tiernan Morgan, and Elisa Wouk Almino.
This is not, however, your average reading. We’re planning a round of art trivia, dramatic reenactments of some of our favorite comments-section flame wars, and a fireside (figuratively) chat about how to be a consistent critic at a time when the cultural landscape is so vast that a single exhibition can take over an entire town.
We might also throw in a surprise or two.
Here’s all the info you need to know:
