We love to push new events onto folks and there are a lot of them coming up soon. Like within the next week soon! Check out all of the Seattle lit and performane events below!
Thanks to Tom Mohrman for writing up a nice recap of last night’s Breadline. He said things like:
Breadline has all the earmarks of a good poetry reading. Close quarters, unique setting, alcohol. It’s clear there were people in attendance who have been there for all three years of the show’s run. Churchy. This felt like church, as all sports events and poetry readings should. I mean, there was an offering. Take all the best trappings, I say, and remix.
The “churchy” atmosphere is as anti-church as it gets. Take the Unitarian ultra tolerance and apply to aesthetics, and maybe you’ll get Breadline. Or maybe not. What do you think? Regardless, Breadline’s an equal-opportunity experience-maker!
There’s an exciting opportunity for you art and idea lovers happening this Wednesday before Breadline. Check out the full details from previous Breadline feature and UW Bothell professor Joe Milutis:
This Weds at noon, I’ll be giving a tour and talk of the Paul Laffoley
exhibit at the Henry:
It’s a more casual talk than the gesamptskunstwerk I did the last time at
the Henry (see here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyUBZn8of9Q and here
http://archive.org/details/artistwritercollaborations) however I don’t often
get a chance to talk about issues related to my Ether book. So we’ll go
deep, while still casual. And there’s a lot to go into–we’ll probably just
scratch the surface of a few of the dense cryptic information in these
paintings, but hopefully they will let us stay as long as we want to discuss
and Q & A, etc. Here is the official description:
Drawing from sources in alchemy, Theosophy and contemporary art, Joe
Milutis, Assistant Professor in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and
Sciences at UW Bothell will guide visitors through “Paul Laffoley:
Premonitions of the Bauharoque.” He will situate Laffoley¹s work in the
context of the long tradition of the mystic diagram, a visual trope that may
tell us as much, if not more, about the history of design than the
imponderabilia it attempts to grasp.
