Ben Marcus is the author of Notable American Women and The Age of Wire and String. Most recently he has edited The Anchor Book of New American Short Stories. He teaches at Columbia.

"I don't use the word lightly, in fact, I don't use it at all, but Ben Marcus is a genius, one of the most daring, funny, morally engaged and brilliant writers, someone whose work truly makes a difference in the world. His prose is, for me, awareness objectified — he makes the word new and thus the world."
(George Saunders).

Exhibit X is a co-presentation of Hallwalls and the UB English Dept., which funds the ongoing series. Writers are selected and introduced by Christina Milletti.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
