Mónica de la Torre, poet and BOMB Magazine Senior Editor, sits down with Will Corwin of Art International Radio and explains the history of BOMB’s America issues (on newsstands now!). Mónica also weighs in on the ups and downs of translation, and relates a moving anecdote about her first professional translation gig in New York—writing a letter of condolence to Roberto Bolaño’s widow.
Roberto Bolaño‘s ‘The Skating Rink‘ is just out, and reviewed at Quaterly Conversation. BOMB interviewed Nick Cave just after his first novel, and now his latest will be available on iPhone. Speaking of art and phones, Yayoi Kusama has designed a cell phone that’s available for purchase. Gus Van Sant rarely gives interviews, but he talked to Gary Indiana for BOMB in 1993, and now Movmnt in 2009. Past interviewees’ current exhibitions include Isabel Toledo at FIT in New York, Chuck Close at Akron Art Museum in Ohio, and Eric Fischl, Los Carpinteros, Gabriel Ozorco and Sergio Vega are all featured in a new exhibition called Art, Media and Material Witness at the Harn Museum in Florida . David Del Tredici plays at Bargemusic in New York on September 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th.
On Saturday, the National Book Critics Circle Awards finalists were announced at the Housing Works Bookstore. A whopping six of them have had interviews or work published in BOMB.
