R.Jampol Project(s) here in New York is about to release a new book by VCS alumna Kylie Lefkowitz, with a release party set for this Friday, September 18 from 7 to 11pm at their Henry Street space. The book will also be available for purchase online. Here’s the press release; you can also find more information about the book on the Facebook invitation for the event.
R.Jampol Project(s) will present a book release party for artist and writer Kylie Lefkowitz. The publication “(Wo)Manuscripts” will be released September 18, 2015 from 7 – 11pm and be available for online sale.
“WoManuscripts” is a collection of works that Lefkowitz created between 2012 – 2015. Pensive thoughts written in cursive and juxtaposed with images of the artist’s body, lackadaisical epitaphs written in notebooks made for elementary
school children to practice their handwriting… all carefully arranged to present an assortment of suggestive vignettes and whimsical notions.
“The creation of this book has been a long time coming, and the vulnerability I sometimes feel when sharing my words with people is a scary feeling. But it also makes me feel very much alive, which is why I still try.”
The words in this book were inspired by events and relationships in the artist’s life which have profoundly affected her in ways so saturated with insight that it seemed only natural to try and regurgitate some of that onto pages.
Kylie Lefkowitz is an emerging artist who has been exhibited internationally, as well as in a variety of spaces in the USA. Lefkowitz is a New Jersey native who went on to attend The School of Visual Arts, (NY, NY), obtaining a BFA through the department of Visual and Critical Studies. She is based out of the NY/NJ area, but travels as often as possible studying various languages and cultures, and doing artist residencies. Stylistically, she is a true “multimedia” artist; working with acquarelle, pen and ink, collage, and 3-D installation. Writing is a large part of her practice, and thus far she has published three art books which are text-based.
R.Jampol Project(s) is located at 191 Henry Street, between Clinton and Jefferson on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. By NYC subway, the F train to East Broadway. Gallery Hours: Thurs. – Sat. 12 p.m. – 6 p.m and Sun. 12 p.m – 4 p.m.
