The Acker Awards is a tribute given to members of the avant garde arts community who have made outstanding contributions in their discipline in defiance of convention, or else served their fellow writers and artists in outstanding ways. The award is named after novelist Kathy Acker who in her life and work exemplified the risk-taking and uncompromising dedication that identifies the true avant garde artist. Acker Awards are granted to both living and deceased members of the New York City or San Franisco communities. The cities were chosen for their historic linkage as centers for the avant garde. In time, though, communities in other cities will be asked to participate. The providers of the Acker Awards are Alan Kaufman (San Francisco) and Clayton Patterson (New York City). The recipients were determined through extensive discussion with members of the arts communities in both cities.

ACKERS AND ACCLAIM FOR ARTISTS    

The Second Annual Acker Awards — celebrating the avant-garde luminaries of the East Village and Lower East Side — lit up Theatre 80 St. Mark’s on Sunday evening. Above, from left, Clayton Patterson, the New York Ackers’ organizer, posed with filmmaker Marc Levin and emcee Bob Holman, of the Bowery Poetry Club. Levin received a lifetime distinction award. Below, Patterson held up the Acker chapbook — sure to be a collector’s item — which was produced by The Villager’s senior designer, Michael Shirey. Forty awards in all were handed out. The Villager will have a full report on the event in next week’s issue. | Photos by Tequila Minsky | in: THE VILLAGER, New York, on June 4, 2014
