At Moments Like These He Feels Farthest Away
January 26 - April 29, 2011  

A series of paintings by artist Philip Monaghan done in collaboration with the poem "Gilligan's Island" by Tim Dlugos.


In Monaghan's words, "These paintings lift images out of their original frames, then cut and paste them together in a childlike manner to form a new story line.... This is not an illustration of the poem, but a dark riff on its emotional content."

Opening reception January 26.

Fragments from the Downtown scene, 1975-Present

The Downtown website is an attempt to provide quality online information about the Downtown New York Scene from 1975 to the present. It is based on materials in the Downtown New York Collection at the Fales Library of New York University. The Downtown Collection is the only collection of its kind at a major research university. The goal of the collection is to document the Downtown scene and to preserve and make available for research the materials produced by the artists, writers, performers, and others who worked downtown. The website will continue to grow as the collection does.
