PPOW Hosts n+1 Party


PPOW Gallery in Chelsea has been lending its space for a variety of interesting literary arts events through its Hostess Project. A few weeks ago it hosted a screening of a film by writers Michael Kimball and Luca Dipierro, I WILL SMASH YOU.

Last week it hosted a celebration of n+1’s fifth birthday and the launch of Issue 8. This is a subjective account of my experience.

I walked in.  Tao Lin said, “Were you invited to this?”

Long shrill atonal sounds floated through the gallery. A man with Malcolm Gladwell hair played the keyboard with his hands and, it seemed, his forehead.


The Hostess Project has pictures.
