Bushwick-based nonprofit library and writing space Wendy’s Subway returns to BAM, as part of the Next Wave Art Series, for the second year with a newly envisioned Reading Room. The space, located in the BAM Fisher Lower Lobby, features titles selected by international, independent, and artist-run libraries, as well as a collection of books selected by Next Wave Festival performers and visual artists.

About Wendy’s Subway
Wendy’s Subway is a nonprofit library and writing space located in Bushwick, Brooklyn. It provides an open, versatile space where cultural production flourishes through reading, research, and collaborative practice, and is manifested in performance, publication, and education. Wendy’s Subway hosts a range of public programs, including readings and screenings, interdisciplinary talks and lectures, discussion and reading groups, and writing workshops. The non-circulating library holds a collection of books and documents with a special focus on poetry, art, theory, and philosophy, as well as the Laurin Raiken Archive, an extensive resource for the study of art history and criticism. Wendy’s Subway is operated by its membership of poets, curators, novelists, artists, and critics with an interest in hybrid forms and cross-disciplinary discourse.
