NM – Junot Diaz Signing

   

Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and most recently This Is How You Lose Her, appears at The Jean Cocteau for a reading and signing on Monday April 21st, 2014 at 7:00 pm!

A few Facts about his interviewers:

Doctor Shanté Paradigm Smalls – A scholar and artist who works at the intersection of popular culture and critical theory.  She is a professor at University of New Mexico in American Studies.
 
Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez – An unrepentant border crosser, ex-dj, writer, painter, and academic.  He is a professor at the University of New Mexico in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

$5 for patrons purchasing paperbacks and $10 for patrons without purchase of book

Díaz turns his remarkable talent to the haunting, impossible power of love – obsessive love, illicit love,
fading love, maternal love. In prose that is endlessly energetic, inventive, tender, and funny, the stories in
This Is How You Lose Her lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weakness of the human heart.
They remind us that passion always triumphs over experience, and that “the half-life of love is forever.

NM – Full Disclosure/Perfect Machine

pn_sf14

Press Release:

Stranger Factory is thrilled to present two new exhibits for February from artists Phil Noto and Jim Mahfood.

Phil Noto’s “Full Disclosure” finds Noto’s signature style in top form, as the artist deftly brings beautiful new characters to life. Few artists are able to capture the subtleties of Full Disclosureuman expressions like Noto, and it’s impossible to look at his works without being drawn in immediately. Beautiful understatement is the name of the game with Noto’s work, from a slightly raised eyebrow to the tiniest of smirks. We are huge fans of Noto’s paintings, and thrilled to be able to present another solo show by this modern master.

In the Project Room we have the frenetic illustration style of Jim Mahfood. His new exhibit, “Perfect Machine”, brings to Stranger Factory an exploration of sense and sensuality couched in his trademark chaotic style…heaps of black ink seem to explode within and around his subjects as they struggle for a handhold in an unsure world. Mahfood’s illustration style is dense and rich, and carries an intense load of sex, comedy, and violence.

Please contact our Press Manager with any additional requests for artist information or show images.

Both exhibits run February 7th – March 2nd, with an opening reception on Friday, February 7th from 6 – 9 PM.
