Oh! Sandy! A Remembrance

On November 10, 2013 the Brooklyn Rail's Phong Bui curated the performance Oh! Sandy: A Remembrance as part of the Come Together: Surviving Sandy exhibition at Industry City, Brooklyn. This gathering of poets included Anne Waldman, Charles Bernstein, Bob Perlman, LaTasha N. Diggs, Tracy Morris, Tan Lin, Vincent Katz, Tonya Foster, Erica Kaufman, Elizabeth Wilis, Paolo Javier, Anselm Berrigan, Matvein Yankelevitch, and Nada Gordon. Each poet's work reflected on the superstorm and it's far reaching implications.


Off The Rail


Artist, critic, curator, teacher and newspaperman Phong Bui is now taking his insatiable talent to the airwaves. A man with a voracious appetite for all things artistic, social and cultural, Phong's work has been shown at such galleries at Pierogi, Sarah Bowen Gallery, Wooster Art Space and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, winning him numerous awards and grants from the American Academy of Letters, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the National Academy, among others. He is a curatorial adviser at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and has taught at such institutions as Columbia University, Bard College and the School of Visual Arts. He used the money from his first sold painting to create the venerable arts, culture and politics journal The Brooklyn Rail and the publishing press The Brooklyn Rail/Black Square Editions. He is an unstoppable force of unyielding curiosity.

Here Phong interviews artists, curators, booksellers and anyone else he finds notable and interesting on the cultural landscape. Follow his lead; it's always proved impeccable.
