We are thrilled to announce the launch of our new podcast Thought Pieces, bringing you the best of long-form writing at the intersection of art and literature. Each week, discover new fiction, poetry, and criticism, reflecting on subjects including the curious history of childhood, lockdown in New York City, and the ethics of documentary photography, written and read by authors at the vanguard of creative practice. Featuring Eileen Myles, Ben Lerner, Lynne Tillman, Collier Schorr, and more.
Listen to Ep.1 Eileen Myles reads 'Vanishing'
In the first of this new podcast from MACK, poet Eileen Myles reads their essay 'Vanishing,' which was published in The Shabbiness of Beauty by Moyra Davey and Peter Hujar. Having pasted photographs by Davey and Hujar on the walls of their New York City apartment, Myles begins an exploratory piece that spans the unrelenting passing of time, the remarkable visual dialogue between these two artists and their shared visual language.
