BURNAWAY proudly presents a public talk by New York-based critic and poet Raphael Rubinstein, author of the influential articles “Provisional Painting” and “A Quiet Crisis,” among others. 

Rubinstein will speak about recent projects based around his book The Miraculous (Paper Monument, 2014), including a 2016 installation in Edinburgh in which extracts from his book were transposed into a site-specific architectural setting. He will also discuss how borrowing from literary forms can open up new possibilities for art writing.
