From ShareTV:
"Powers’ colorful path in contemporary art first manifested itself in 1997 when he became the editor-in chief of Blackbook magazine. Until 2005, Powers remained with Blackbook, while writing about art and culture for other prominent titles including the New York Times, W, Paper, Vanity Fair and Details, to name a few. Through his extensive editorial work, Powers has interviewed some of today’s preeminent contemporary artists from around the world, including Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Kara Walker, Ed Ruscha and John Currin. 
Powers’ written work extends beyond his contributions to press. His foray into the field of publishing led him to issue art books for the promising German multi-media artist, Jonathan Meese, as well as for American painter Rachel Feinstein. Powers published his own first novel, Tall Island, in July 2004. The satire following the entangled lives of three downtown New Yorkers was called a “must read” by Harper’s Bazaar, and a "clever comedic romp" by the Los Angeles Times."
