WHEN DOES IT OR YOU BEGIN? (MEMORY AS INNOVATION)

Jennifer Karmin
at Links Hall
3435 N. Sheffield Avenue
Chicago, IL


WEEK ONE
Individual Memory: A Celebration for
Hannah Weiner
featuring performative readings, butoh dance, & installations

January’s inquiry into innovation begins by remembering the practice of one artist, the late Hannah Weiner, a clairvoyant poet who came into view, and then helped shape, the New York avant-garde of the 1960s. To this end, local and national writers and artists have reanimated Weiner’s work or created new pieces in memory of her.
