From October 29 to November 4, Snowy Wilderness and Wonder will bring Ben Fama's next book Mall Witch to life as a gallery show at Culturefix, Number 9 Clinton Street, Lower East Side, New York City.

In this exciting project, Snowy Wilderness, Wonder's Andrew Durbin and Ben Fama, Paul Legault, and Joseph Kaplan will experiment with the daily-evolving rapprochement between language and everyday consciousness on the far side of the internet revolution, creating a new visual and textual experience of American poetry. 

Mall Witch’s new media poetics will explore our web-based experience of text and imagery, our collective immersion in increasingly condensed and truncated language and the accidental poetry created in the digital slipstream of lives lived half-online. 

Mall Witch will also be an experiment in art gallerizing. In addition to non-digital works, the week-long show will integrate a number of live performances that will begin and end on the Internet, prohibiting a physical monopolization of the space by either the plastic or digital arts. With a disturbing appeal like that of mannequins in a shop window, Mall Witch will exist between accessible and inaccessible modes of display and performance.

We are raising funds here to print the show's exhibition catalog, which will be sent to all contributors, and to print special articles and works for the gallery. We hope you will support us.
