💥 Save the date! This coming Saturday March 4th beginning at 7pmMA|DE members will be participating in a free-to-attend poetry reading celebrating the book launch of ryan fitzpatrick’s Sunny Ways (Invisible Publishing, 2023) — we’ll be doing both solo and collaborative sets, and word has it that Wallace will have advance copies of their debut solo collection, Love Is A Place But You Cannot Live There (which will officially launch in Windsor some time in April)
💥 Save the date! This coming Friday February 24th from 6-8pmTHE EX-PURITAN is launching their hybrid/experimental section (which appear in Issue 60: Winter 2023) and we are thrilled to be a part of both the inaugural iteration of this section and its launch!
We’re happy to be debuting a video/sound/text collaboration with12K / Kranky / Dronarivm recording artist, Christopher Bissonnette!
💥 Some pics from our Saturday Aug 06 gig in Toronto — we did a collaborative reading at the FERTILE FEST‘s Blasted Tree Garden Party in a lovely open barn-garage space behind The Great Escape Book Store (957 Kingston Rd) on a very hot day — we read with Aaron Tucker and Kyle Flemmer, and it was so lovely to see a range of friends from the lit scene and play catch-up … thnx to everyone who came out!
💥 Some peeks at our ‘Triple Marrow’ exhibition for WRITING ELSEWAYS at The Plumb (1655 Dufferin St, Toronto), which opened Friday Aug 05; the cat-trapped-in-a-vase work is called ‘Growl’ and the hand-with-pearls work is called ‘Pneumette’
This project includes an interactive component which we describe as an object-and-language donation centre: members of the community are invited to bring interesting small objects to The Plumb throughout the duration of the exhibit and to jot a word or two on the wall … once the show closes, we’ll attempt to incorporate these ‘donations’ into future works!
💥 Save the date! We’re happy to be participating in WRITING ELSEWAYS in Toronto; our exhibit of text + collage-sculptures will be publicly launching on Fri Aug 05 from 5-7pm (our first in-person art event since the pandemic began) — at The Plumb (1655 Dufferin St, Toronto) … please join us!
“Less an exhibition than an extended experimental workshop, WRITING ELSEWAYS creates space for incomplete and in-process poetry by other means. Over a month of special programming, poet-artists Kevin Andrew Heslop, Jessica Bebenek, Rasiqra Revulva, MA|DE, Jo Ianni, Miles Forrester and the Toronto Experimental Translation Collective (TETC) will explore works and non-works that pull creative writing off the page, incorporating both expanded fields of sensory experience (visual, oral, tactile) and new conceptualizations of the poetic and the literary.”
