Robert Kelly, The Color Mill

As part of the public events coinciding with Spaced Out, Migration to the Interior, the 2014 exhibition at Red Bull Studios New York, Brooklyn Rail sponsored a book release reception and reading from The Color Mill, a new collaboration between poet Robert Kelly and artist Nathlie Provosty, as well as from Robert Kelly's collected essays, A Voice Full of Cities: The Collected Essays of Robert Kelly, edited by Pierre Joris & Peter Cockelbergh.

Robert Kelly has collaborated with a number of visual artists, and is the author of more than 50 books of poetry, several novels, and five collections of shorter fiction. Nathlie Provosty is a visual artist based in New York who has exhibited nationally and internationally. The Color Mill is a collaboration between the two, in which Kelly responds to Provosty's paintings with his poetry.

Spaced Out closes December 14, 2014.


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.
