Not Content: Performance 3

August 19, 2010 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Not Content: Performance 3 with Johanna Drucker, Mathew Timmons, Yedda Morrison

Johanna Drucker, Yedda Morrison, and Mathew Timmons performing from I AM WORDLE, DARKNESS and CREDIT!

These three are the next writers, curated by Les Figues Press, to perform with Not Content, a series of text projects that investigate the ways in which language functions within public and private spheres and within the tenuous and transitory space between these real and imagined realms. 

Johanna Drucker is an artist and writer who is known for her experimental typographic books and her critical writings on visual poetry, typographic history, and digital aesthetics. She teaches in the Information Studies Department at UCLA.

Writer and visual artist Yedda Morrison was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her books include Girl Scout Nation (Displaced Press, 2008) and Crop (Kelsey Street Press, 2003). Darkness (A Biocentric Reading of Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness) is forthcoming from Make Now Press in Los Angeles. Her writing has appeared in numerous anthologies and collections, most recently in The Book of Practical Pussies with artist Michelle Rollman, and Collective Task, edited by poet Robert Fitterman. Morrison has exhibited her visual work in the US and Canada, and is currently represented by Republic Gallery in Vancouver, BC. She lives in San Francisco.
