AT 40TH STREET NEW LIFE STOREFRONT (644 40TH ST)
3x is an ongoing series of micro-performances and presentations every Wednesday night at the Wolfman New Life Quarterly Bookstore (644 40th Street). Two or three artists will perform or present three roughly five minute sets at 6:30, 7:30, and 8:30. 3x offers an experimental, serial space for audience and performer to break up the predictable dynamics of an evening of performance. Performers/presenters will include writers, visual artists, musicians, dancers, filmmakers, and practitioners of all sorts. Come for one "set" or stay for all three!

Ward Long is photographer living in Oakland, California. His pictures describe loss, people, and landscape, and the way all three are inexorably linked by memory. Combining literary precision and cinematic immersion, his projects blend personal storytelling with documentary realism. At the heart of his work is a kind of visual tenderness; the camera is cast as an instrument of care, counting eyelashes and branches, hoping to see with generosity and sensitivity for both the subject and the viewer. Much of his work takes shape as handmade books; recent titles have centered on longing for home and the fear you'll never find it, madness and used cars in Jacksonville, as well as bathers and cliff jumpers at swimming holes in North Carolina.
