Explanation as Composition Audio Opening
It is understood by this time that everything is the same except explanation and time, explanation and the time of the explanation and the time in the explanation.
Explanation as Composition explores the ways in which texts—as narratives—operate within and around a gallery space. How does the narrative of an experience affect that experience, and how are narratives “curated”—publicly and privately?
Join Les Figues and LACE for the official opening of the Explanation as Composition audio tours. These six narrative experiences of the LACE exhibition space were initiated during a collaborative social writing event which included fifteen writers: Amanda Ackerman, Harold Abramowitz, Kate Durbin, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum, Teresa Carmody, Aimee Bender, Allison Carter, Mark Z. Danielewski, Carribean Fragoza, Veronica Gonzalez, Janice Lee, Harryette Mullen, Janet Sarbanes, Anna Joy Springer, and Stephen Van Dyck.
Gallery visitors can choose which narrative they will experience: story, geography, ekphrasis, provenance, nature, or confession.
Explanation as Composition is curated by U.N.F.O. (Unauthorized Narrative Freedom Organization), an unofficial and temporary coalition of five writers, including Amanda Ackerman, Harold Abramowitz, Kate Durbin, Sarah Shun-lien Bynum and Teresa Carmody.
Audio tours run March 3 – April 17, 2011.
Special thanks to Aaron Drake for making these audio tours possible.
