Eli Horowitz x Homecoming

Eli Horowitz has created Homecoming which is the first scripted series for Gimlet Media, starring Catherine Keener, Oscar Isaac, David Schwimmer, David Cross, and Amy Sedaris. Homecoming centers on a caseworker at an experimental facility, her ambitious supervisor, and a soldier eager to rejoin civilian life — presented in an enigmatic collage of telephone calls, therapy sessions, and overheard conversations.

Hrishikesh Hirway of Song Exploder selected Eli as his inspiration. See who inspired Eli when he contributed to Just Dix Degrees in this thread

Seamus Murphy - Home is Another Place exhibition

The photographer Seamus Murphy, who we created a thread of Six Degrees with in 2016, is back in his hometown of Dublin with an exhibition of work. 

"Returning to Ireland after the recession to view a country and her capital changing dramatically, Murphy has created a new collection of images that depict a country teeming with life, humour, absurdity, pathos, hardship, tenacity and love. At the heart of these images of our fellow countrymen and women, we find ourselves.

This exhibition expands on Seamus's critically-acclaimed 2016 monograph The Republic. Returning to Ireland after travelling with guerrilla fighters across Syria, Seamus catches us off-guard with stolen moments of hard (and often comical) reality."

Home is Another Place runs in The Little Museum Dublin until February 26th.

Ali Smith x Autumn

The Man Booker nominee Ali Smith who contributed to a thread publishes her new novel Autumn this week.

Autumn. Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. That's what it felt like for Keats in 1819. 

How about Autumn 2016? 

Daniel is a century old. Elisabeth, born in 1984, has her eye on the future. The United Kingdom is in pieces, divided by a historic once-in-a-generation summer.

Love is won, love is lost. Hope is hand in hand with hopelessness. The seasons roll round, as ever.

Ali Smith's new novel is a meditation on a world growing ever more bordered and exclusive, on what richness and worth are, on what harvest means. This first in a seasonal quartet casts an eye over our own time. Who are we? What are we made of? Shakespearian jeu d'esprit, Keatsian melancholy, the sheer bright energy of 1960s Pop art: the centuries cast their eyes over our own history-making.

Here's where we're living. Here's time at its most contemporaneous and its most cyclic.

From the imagination of the peerless Ali Smith comes a shape-shifting series, wide-ranging in timescale and light-footed through histories, and a story about ageing and time and love and stories themselves.

Here comes Autumn.

Jeremy Deller x Iggy Pop

The Brooklyn Museum is exhibiting Iggy Pop Life Class, the collaboration between Turner prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller and Iggy Pop (Nov 4-Mar 26). Jeremy Deller was chosen as a source of inspiration by Brian Eno for Just Six Degrees this autumn. His "work surprises me at so many levels. It expands the idea of what an artist does, of what Art could be, and what it could be for," said Eno.

The exhibition presents the drawings from a traditional life drawing class whereby the pop icon was both model and subject. The 53 drawings were created on February 21, 2016 during a one-day class led by artist and drawing professor Michael Grimaldi.
