Deadlines and Divine Distractions is an ongoing epistolary project co-edited by Negar Azimi, writer, and Editor-in-Chief of Bidoun, and Pati Hertling, Deputy Director of Performance Space New York. The project lives on the internet where it brings together irreverent letters between friends and strangers, the living, and the dead. Deadlines is an ardent expression of the editors' belief in and love for the (promiscuous) art of letter writing. Past contributors to the series include Eileen Myles, Eliot Weinberger, Ariana Reines, Mary Gaitskill, Gary Indiana, CAConrad, Ottessa Moshfegh, Yasmine El Rashidi, Rachel Kushner, Kaveh Akbar, Lynne Tillman, Sarah Nicole Prickett, Solmaz Sharif, Tobi Haslett, Miranda July, & Natasha Stagg, for example. In the spirit of John Giorno’s practice of working collaboratively with artists throughout his career, The John Giorno Foundation is pleased to host Deadlines and Divine Distractions latest project at The Bunker.
