Please join us on Tuesday, May 21st, at 7:30 PM for the celebratory conclusion to this Poetry & Poetics season. The event is free and open to the public. We’ll be meeting at Fisher Bennett Hall (3400 Walnut Street) in the Grad Lounge (Room 330). Strong drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
Though the academic calendar as exhausted itself, Poetry & Poetics is thrilled to announce our final event of the year featuring our own J. Gordon Faylor in a second-to-last performance in Philadelphia (see also: PHP) before his departure to the Bay Area. Scripting a new site-specific work for this event, Gordon will present “Departure Capita Mortua,” a multi-faceted poetic engagement with enclosure via divestment. This enclosure deploys the room itself in a conversation that features Trisha Low, Diego Rivera, “autoregressive appropriation,” “decisional stand-up,” and “texts posed as transpositional fictive ordinances against which the venue plays partition.” Needless to say, this is an event that is not to be missed. Help send Gordon off in style with a lively conversation about poetry, poetics, and their relations. Please see the Format section for further notes on the program.
J. Gordon Faylor is the editor of Gauss PDF and the author of Docking, Rust Archon (bas-books, 2012). He currently lives in Philadelphia. See works online via Troll Thread, on Jacket2, at Title Magazine, through Lulu, across Lateral Addition, & in many other locations on the internet.
