CONVERSATIONS IN CONTEMPORARY POETICS: CAT TYC / MARIE SÉGOLÈNE by WINSTON TAYLOR RECORDS published on 2018-05-17T05:52:01Z Conversations in Contemporary Poetics, a monthly reading and discussion series exploring the diverse ways in which poetry integrates with life, media, and politics, continues with readings by interdisciplinary artists Cat Tyc and Marie Ségolène. Cat Tyc will unravel a text in the form of a video projection with collaborators Scott Kiernan and Lea Bertucci. Marie Ségolène will present a performance work that embodies what happens when poetry is taken off the page and becomes an environment. Organized by writer and curator, Jeffrey Grunthaner, Conversations in Contemporary Poetics foregrounds what goes on behind the making of a poem. Rather than simply presenting poems as completed works (books, or finalized texts), the series acts like a studio visit, showcasing aspects of a poet’s creative practice that might otherwise go unnoticed. A collectible program, including texts by the readers and original artwork by Henry Gunderson, will be available at the event. Audio of the readings will be archived by Winston Taylor Records.
