An Evening of Poetry and Performance at Proteus Gowanus

On July 8th, Underwater New York hosted an evening of poetry and performance at Observatory, the Brooklyn art space attached to Proteus Gowanus. Visitors were free to peruse the exhibition Transport III with Underwater New York and listened to a reading by the extraordinary poet Alex Dimitrov, a dramatic reading of the outrageous 1886 New York Times article entitled "A Barren Island Mystery: An Amateur Photographer's Peril--Was it an Attempt at Murder? " by actor Mark Emerson Smith, and underwater-y selections from the adjacent Reanimation Library
