Monstrares Opening Reception
February 26, 2014, 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.
Julie Meneret Contemporary Art, 133 Orchard Street, New York, NY

Saskia Hamilton will give a reading of her work on the occasion of the gallery reception for Monstrares, Jonny Briggs' photography exhibition. He is a British conceptual photographer whose work focuses on the latent yet powerful effects of familial memory. Through elaborate staging, he creates uncanny effects that appear digitally manipulated but are in fact three-dimensional scenes. Briggs’ dark and lyrical imagery provides us the perfect opportunity to host the acclaimed poet Saskia Hamilton, who will give a reading on the evening of Februrary 26.


Saskia Hamilton is a poet and poetry scholar whose writing has appeared in journals such as the New Yorker, Kenyon Review, New York Times Book Review, and Ploughshares. She has authored and edited numerous books, and is the recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship, and fellowships from the Radcliffe Institute and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Jonny Briggs is the recipient of the Saatchi New Sensations Prize, a finalist for the Catlin Art Prize, and has been the subject of much press in publications such as Aesthetica, The Independent, Dazed & Confused, and The Guardian. Briggs has exhibited work throughout Europe and the UK. This is his first exhibition in the United States.
