Weekend: Matthew Wong, Rosemary Mayer, and Nathaniel Mackey's Epic Poem

Jun 19, 2021 • View in browser
In his review of Matthew Wong’s drawings, John Yau quotes the late artist from an online magazine interview: “Art is all-encompassing in my daily life.” Peter Moore, in considering Nathaniel Mackey’s epic poem Double Trio, describes what the poet calls “all day music,” an openness to what the everyday brings to his art.
Our daily celebrations and depredations and, even more importantly, the vast realm of the mundane that lies between these highs and lows constitute what we end up calling a life. Truly memorable moments come along rarely, but the weekly appearance of Hyperallergic Weekend in your inbox surely merits the kind of attentiveness evoked by Wong and Mackey.
