American Realness

Your guide from the inside

READING started as a zine for American Realness 2013. Now it is an annual series of commissioned essays published at AmericanRealness.com. Curated by Stephanie Acosta, the writings for READING 2018 allow us to revisit what we’ve seen through the eyes of makers, thinkers, dancers, performance artists and scholars. Six essays from Alexis Covento, Abigail Levine, Angie Pittman, J Soto, Keijaun Thomas, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, and an intro from Acosta bring dynamic views to bear on a select group of works presented at this year’s festival.
