Brooklyn-based visual artist, professor, curator, and writer Elizabeth Albert and online arts journal Underwater New York co-host the launch of Silent Beaches, Untold Stories: New York City’s Forgotten Waterfront, an exploration of lesser known and neglected areas of the New York City coastline through the multi-disciplinary lens of historical narrative, archival photography and contemporary art. Each chapter is completed by the addition of short fiction and poetry selected by the editors of Underwater New York, whom Albert has credited as one of the original sources of inspiration for this project. The evening will feature images from the book, and readings by contributors Susan Choi, Kamilah Aisha Moon, Nelly Reifler, and Amy Shearn, with a reception to follow.
