Woman Made Gallery Poetry Reading Series
recorded Sunday, 2011-06-19
How does it work? Five different poets, five different ways, varying from poem to poem and poet to poet. Abstraction can happen as a phenomenon of sound and voice (or multiple sounds, multiple voices) and/or as an arrangement of letters and words on the page; it can happen via the workings or un-workings of form or take shape as an idea. Each act of making can generate abstraction as experience, as mode of consciousness or, more accurately, both. Our featured poets will share work reflective of different lineages and traditions and the many routes for poetry to take through, to, or away from (a way from) abstraction.
This event was recorded with the consent and participation of the contributing artists and the host venue, Woman Made Gallery. The recording was originally made available on the web through WBEZ-FM/Chicago Public Radio's Chicago Amplified project.
