A brand-new, high-powered and beautifully designed annual that brings together poetry, literature, critical writing, visual arts and other culturally significant material in a way that is exciting, contemporary and fresh, The Sienese Shredder includes work by emerging and established artists; unpublished rarities and oddball pieces; items by lesser-known artists who deserve recognition; and explorations of work by a well-chosen featured artist and/or poet each issue. Among other things, Issue One contains never-before-seen postcard collages by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet John Ashbery; a special CD insert featuring the only American Oulipo writer, Harry Mathews, reading a selection of his never-before recorded poems dating from 1955-2005; dealer and historian Francis M. Naumann's attempt to unravel Marcel Duchamp's unsolvable chess problem; paintings by featured artist Jane Hammond, including works done in collaboration with John Ashbery; New Media artist, curator and prioprietor of New York's vertexList gallery, Marcin Ramocki, discussing 8Bit, his documentary about gaming culture; featured poet Ron Padgett's new long poems; artist Ron Morosan on the late drawings of the kooky outsider artist, Louis Eilshemius, made on his personal letterhead; and an interview with artist Richard Tuttle about the late Richard Bellamy, the great art dealer and advocate of the historically important Green Gallery. An extremely impressive debut and a guaranteed collector's item.
