Opening Reception | Interior Life: Intimate Spaces


An exhibition of new works by artist Derrick Adams. Inspired by a tenet of Catholic theology that describes "a life which seeks God in everything,” Interior Life is a mediation on the intimate spaces of one’s mind and home, each an analog for the other. The exhibition includes new portraits on paper from the artist’s ongoing Deconstruction Worker series, installed on custom wallpaper depicting imaginary domestic environments. Adams’ spatial exploration of the relationship between the intimate and the infinite finds an ideal setting at Luxembourg & Dayan’s New York gallery, which resides in the second smallest townhouse in Manhattan. Adams’ artistic mission to devise spaces for his figures is advanced by a sophisticated and highly personalized architectural vocabulary. The fundamental processes and presentation strategies of architecture are important in his work: floor plans, elevations, sections, renderings, and construction all perform as developmental states in what he has described as “non-traditional aerial landscape portraits.” His Deconstruction Worker series consists of deftly collaged, kaleidoscopically geometric human figures that appear to live in concurrent states of atomization and coalescence. These angular constructed images of urban dwellers and the worlds that surround—and shape and reflect—their daily lives, suggest that human beings’ carefully created physical environments are replete with the invisible force of the soul. Derrick Adams is a multidisciplinary New York-based artist working in performance, video, and sound, as well as painting and sculpture. His artistic practice is rooted in Deconstructivist philosophies and the ways in which human ideals become attached to objects, colors, textures, symbols, and ideologies. Adams’ work focuses on the fragmentation and manipulation of structure and surface, exploring the shape-shifting force of popular culture on self-image and forward projection.

Author Reading | Dead Men's Trousers: The Latest from the Author of Trainspotting


A spectacular return of the wild, dissolute gang from Trainspotting, from the author Irvine Welsh, who the The New York Times called "Blisteringly funny.... " The gang from Trainspotting have mostly cleaned up their act ... until they are drawn back together to Scotland for one last scheme -- a scheme one of them won't survive. It's an action-packed, hilarious and rollicking trip, as well as a moving elegy to the crew. Mark Renton is finally a success. An international jet-setter, he now makes significant money managing DJs, but the constant travel, airport lounges, soulless hotel rooms and broken relationships have left him dissatisfied with his life. He's then rocked by a chance encounter with Frank Begbie, from whom he'd been hiding for years after a terrible betrayal and the resulting debt. But the psychotic Begbie appears to have reinvented himself as a celebrated artist and - much to Mark's astonishment - doesn't seem interested in revenge. Sick Boy and Spud, who have agendas of their own, are intrigued to learn that their old friends are back in town, but when they enter the bleak world of organ-harvesting, things start to go so badly wrong. Lurching from crisis to crisis, the four men circle each other, driven by their personal histories and addictions, confused, angry - so desperate that even Hibs winning the Scottish Cup doesn't really help. One of these four will not survive to the end of this book. Which one of them is wearing Dead Men's Trousers? Restrictions apply. Call store for details.

Author Reading | Premonitions: Selected Essays on the Culture of Revolt


Bringing together a decade of AK Thompson’s essays on the culture of revolt, Premonitions offers an engaged assessment of contemporary radical politics. Inspired by Walter Benjamin, Thompson combines scholarship and grassroots grit to disabuse readers—and rebels—of cherished certainties. Whether uncovering the unrealized promise buried in mainstream culture or tracing our course toward the moment of reckoning ahead, the essays in Premonitions are both practical investigations and prescient provocations.
