Artists and writers were paired up for live collaborations that make use of physical space. Audiences moved between rooms to discover, and participate in, new projects as they developed.
Ébauche, a multi-genre collaborative arts project: Rebecca Bates, Contributing Editor, Guernica Magazine; Amanda Calderon, Poet, NYU; Haniya Rae, Co-Art Editor, Guernica Magazine.
Anne Carson is a professor of Classics as well as a poet, essayist and translator. Her publishing career began with Eros the Bittersweet: An Essay (1986),which also established Carson’s style of patterning her writings after classical Greek literature. Such works as Glass, Irony, and God (1992), Plainwater: Essays and Poetry (1995) and Men in the Off Hours (2001) have helped seal the author’s reputation as unique among contemporary poets. But perhaps the most widely received examples of her particular specialty are Carson’s verse novels, Autobiography of Red: A Novel in Verse (1998) and The Beauty of the Husband: A Fictional Essay in 29 Tangos (2001).
