Encounters is a collection of new short stories by photographer Ian Lewandowski, debuting at the New York Art Book Fair, PS1 MoMA. Will be at Packet BiWeekly’s table, a09. Launch with Ian is Saturday, September 27th at 3PM.
"a departure from earlier more autobiographical works with names and facts unabridged, with this work I was very interested in the artifice engrained into daily interaction and the failure of the body to portray desire. the internal dialogues that manifest as a result narrate each piece. culling information from interactions i’ve observed in public sectors, online, and in my own personal relationships, each story is the product of several unrelated interactions and experiences, creating a new fictional narrative. the interactions among characters feel stunted and awkward—- a membrane of artifice obstructs a potential for intimacy. a beyond-the-grave aristocrat expresses her disdain for the young socialites who own her now vintage designer garments. a shoplifter has lunch with a mentally challenged woman to fulfill a community service quota."
We’re very excited to announce a new book of writing by artist Ian Lewandowski that Slow Youth has published. Other Bedrooms features eleven pieces of poetry and prose Ian has written in the past three years. The zine will make its debut this weekend at the Bushwick Art Book & Zine Fair at Signal Gallery. We’ll be at the Packet table.
Book will be available online for purchase shortly.

AMO is a collective of young creatives working to merge educational, research, and artistic practice through a shared space.
AMO studios is raising money to get a new physical space and also an interactive website. They are great, motivated, inclusive people who help create really important events. Kris and I had the launch for the first Slow Youth here and I later curated a show while they still had the Bushwick location. Both of those nights were some of the best that I have had in NYC. Look out for an interview with Nicole coming soon as well!!
