Powerhouse Books

And it is Sunday on this day, that day of rest. Or is that Saturday, the Sabbath. And yet I find myself blaghing away. And I remember blah blogging about PowerHouse Books sometime a while ago on this blog. And it was for that book that was all the rage titled "Tompkins Square", a black and white photography book by Q. Sakamaki and essay by Bill Weinberg that appeared in memoriam of the 20th Anniversary of the Tompkins Square Park Riots in that Park, that park everywhere in that former New York City neighborhood of the Lower East Side, that is now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes maybe. And that book rocked. And this time Powerhouse Books, or is it Powerhouse Arena is having an art exhibit called "2,191 Days and Counting" curated by Maya Joseph-Goteiner and Chere Krakovsky to benefit Iraq Veterans Against the War. And there are a hundred artists in that show. I know because the flyer that they have on their website says so. And there will be art and performances as part of the community's response to the continuing Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. And videos will be a part of this exhibition also. And some of those artists and performers include Danya Abt, Grace Ann Alfiero, Waleed Ashad, Carol Ashley, Perry Bard, Nina Berman, Wafaa Bilal, Jean Christian Bourcart, Sherrard Bostwick, Orna Bradshaw, Pam Butler, Doris Caçoilo, Drew Cameron, Damian Catera, Sarawut Chutiwongpeti, Susanna Coffey, Michael Courvoisier, Carla Cubit, Larry Cyr, Peter Delman, Alyssa Dreyfus, Elise Engler, Danielle Fotopoulos, Marilyn Freeman, Joy Garnett, Ariel Goldberg, Sam Gould, Aaron Glantz, Lori Grinker, Fariba Hajamadi, Tara Hughes-Hall, Rene Farkass, Basem Hassan, Diane Hodack, Aaron Hughes, Lanna Joffrey, Andrew Ellis Johnson, David Joseph-Goteiner, Wonder Koch, Joyce Kozloff, Dorothy Krakovsky, Jason Laning, Tyler Lee Zabe, Ju-Pong Lin, Ardele Lister, Melissa Macalpin, Kyla Mathis-Angress, Suzanne McClelland, Steve McCurry, Dato Mio, James Nachtwey, Nobuho Nagasawa, Aron Namenwirth, Farah Nosh, David Opdyke, Alexander Optivion, Zach Osif, Franc Palaia, Paul Park, Caroline Parker, John Paul, Kenneth Pietrobono, Grace Graupe-Pillard, Lucian Read, Paul Root, Martha Rosler, Erika Rothenberg, Safa Samiezade-Yazd, Susan Silas, Elin O’Hara Slavick, Susanne Slavick, Qais Al-Sindy, Joan Snyder, Molly Snyder-Fink Chrysanne Stathacos, Jon Turner, Betsy Van Die, Christopher Vongsawat, Nathaniel Ward, AJ Wilhelm, Sarah Nelson Wright, Agnes Wszolkowski, Suyeon Yun, Tyler Zabel, The Artists Against The War, The Combat Paper Project and more.
