Upcoming Not Content

8 August 2010, 2 & 4 p.m.
Credit Launch

In late spring 2007 as an irrational exuberance and promise of financial fortune hung in the air, mailboxes were filled with generous and gracefully worded offers of credit. Just over two years later, in midsummer 2009, the shape of the financial environment changed radically and mailboxes still filled up with statements of credit. Something had to change, offer turned to obligation.

Based on Mathew Timmons’ book of the same name, CREDIT is a highly revealing and emotional work chronicling a personal tale of credit.

2:00 Artist/writer talk with Mathew Timmons
4:00 Kick-off event, begin transcription of book, plus other surprise performances!

13 August-21 August 2010
