  • Location:
    The Old American Can Factory, 232 Third Street, Brooklyn, New York, 11215, US

Infinity's Kitchen magazine will host a release party in Brooklyn, New York at The Old American Can Factory. The party will celebrate the magazine's sixth issue of experimental literature, on the evening of June 13, 2013.

Founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 2008, Infinity's Kitchen is a graphic literary journal of experimental literature and conceptual writing. The publication is designed to explore new and innovative forms of literature, via print, performance and technology. The sixth and latest issue contains poetry, short fiction, essays on literary process and visual poems from 13 international contributors in print and 26 international contributors online.

Contributors to the new issue will read and/or discuss their work during the event. These contributors include: Billy Cancel, whose poems are collages of found phrases and ideas; Greg Gathman, an experimental filmmaker whose video combines cellphone footage and music to accompany interlaced lines from different poems; Gary Heidt, author of an essay exploring the idea of the Word Square; Erica ESH Henry, who combines the use of musical notational symbols with written poetry; Katie Morales, a dancer and choreographer whose essay offers “erratic thoughts on an art form nobody cares about unless Natalie Portman is making out with a girl.” and members of the theater group Van Reipen Collective will read poetry written for multiple simultaneous voices by Scottish poet Ashby McGowan.
