Shandaken Projects invites you to Adult Contemporary, co-organized by 2014 Summer Intensive participant Katherine Brewer Ball. This fantastic reading series became venue-less after rescheduling to accommodate an Eric Garner action, and we are pleased to be able to offer our exhibition space for their use.

Adult Contemporary is an experimental non/fiction salon series featuring readings, lectures, interviews, and performances by established and emerging writers, artists, and academics. It seeks out first-person perspectives characterized by the urgent and the everyday; true stories that connect us to the big by way of the small, uneventful, and unexpected. Readings will be followed by informal conversations.

This edition will include: Morgan Bassichis, a writer and performer whose plays include When the Baba Yaga Eats You Alive and The Witch House; Jibz Cameron, a performance/video artist whose work as alter ego Dynasty Handbag has been presented at many international dives both great and small; and Jack Halberstam, a provocateur, blogger, and writer, who officially makes mischief at USC in the department of American Studies and Ethnicity.
