I'm taking over the instagram account of Artists For Puerto Rico this week, the 6 month anniversary of Hurricane Maria. I'll be posting some studio work. Follow along @artistsforpuertorico and if you're looking for a way to help, consider purchasing some art - proceeds go to Unidos Por Puerto Rico to aid in their relief efforts.
March 5th I'll be reading from Light Blue Desire at Elyssa Goodman's Miss Manhattan Non-Fiction Reading Series at Niagara Bar at 7:45 alongside a roster of deep talent ( come - it's free! )

8. “Once in a Blue Moon” at Printed Matter, Inc.
A book launch and reading celebrating the release of Magali Duzant’s Light Blue Desire: A Manual to the Color Blue, aptly taking place on the evening of the astronomical phenomenon of a blue moon. The book is an investigation into the connection between language and form, specifically the color blue and how it functions as a metaphor and an idiom in the broad cultural landscape.
Location: Printed Matter, Inc., 231 11th Avenue
Time: Book launch & reading: 6 p.m.–8 p.m.

I have been awarded a 2018 New Work Grant by the Queens Council on the Arts through the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. The grant will provide funding to produce a new artist book, entitled And She Says Don't Give Up : A Psychic's Subway Guide. The book is both a visual archive of flyers found on the NYC subway system as well as a practical guide to the city's transit system featuring an annotated subway map alongside an exploration of the tropes found in neo-spiritual advertising.
