Wednesday 18  Pippa Garner, Act Like You Know Me
7pm at After 8 Books

with Fiona Alison Duncan, Maurin Dietrich, Gina Merz, Shola von Reinhold, Mona Varichon, Fanny Gonella and HIT.

The first comprehensive monograph and critical survey of American artist Pippa Garner, Act Like You Know Me surveys fifty years of her radical and transdisciplinary art practice, from the late 1960s to the early 2010s, through ca. 400 photographs, illustration, ephemera, and original writings. Encompassing Garner's most iconic works, from the Backwards Car to the Half-Suit, alongside never-before-seen photographs and ephemera, Act Like You Know Me serves to introduce a highly-influential, under-recognized artist whose uncompromising approach to life and practice has allowed her to interact with the worlds of illustration, editorial, television, and art without ever becoming beholden to them.

Published on the occasion of Pippa Garner's travelling exhibition at Kunstverein München, Kunsthalle Zürich, 49 Nord 6 Est – Frac Lorraine and White Columns (NYC).
Edited by Maurin Dietrich and Fiona Alison Duncan. Published by Bierke, Berlin

Thursday 19 ‘Poems’ by Zoë Lund
7pm at After 8 Books / 9.30pm Cinéma Le Brady

With Manon Lutanie and Stephanie LaCava
Poems presents four unpublished poems by American writer and actress Zoë Lund (1962– 1999), written in the 1980s. An incandescent voice emerges, revealing the might, sincerity, and precision of her expression, as well as her vulnerability and defiance in the face of death. A reading will take place at the bookstore, followed by a screening at Cinéma Le Brady, two blocks away, at 9:30. We’ll screen ’Hot Ticket’ (96 seconds), directed by Zoë Lund in 1993, and a newly restored copy of ’Bad Lieutenant’ (1992, 96 minutes, with French subtitles), directed by Abel Ferrara and written by Zoë Lund, who also stars in it.
