Join us for a performance by artist Jeneen Frei Njootli with invited guest Danielle Printup.
"Writing is like cutting up meat. It can be done so gracefully, with purpose and ease. The grain of what was once warm in your hands, in your heart, and in your mind falls away cleanly, making thin enough slabs that could even sustain you in the winter. They could be disseminated. They could be a thesis. If you aren’t seasoned, and are in fact, quite green, you may end up with many small pieces of varying thicknesses, too small or awkward for the pole, the printer, or the shelf. I still find this tool awkward to hold, even though I need it for survival here. Will you come over for tea instead? I want to let the words seep into my marrow so that I too could one day make good soup."
Following the performance there will be a discussion with exhibition artists moderated by guest curator Brad Isaacs.
