Location: Special Exhibitions Gallery, Perelman Building With Kenneth Goldsmith, Tracie Morris, and Marina Rosenfeld
Join us for performances of Surrealist poetry, literature, manifestos, and music. Let loose by the unconscious mind and put in the service of radical conviction, the written word was a vital medium of Surrealism. Poets Kenneth Goldsmith and Tracie Morris will bring historic Surrealist texts to life in English translations. Composer and experimental turntablist Marina Rosenfeld will contribute a musical performance applying surrealist techniques to historic recordings.
This program is supported by the Center for American Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
