-Saturday, June 1st, 6pm: Sabine Silver
Sabine Silver is a solo performing avant garde vocalist and classically trained harpist presenting a dreamy and dramatic spectacle called The Haunted Theatre.
"The juxtaposition of her utopian anarchist spirit and the otherworldly and angelic qualities of the harp leave in the dust more traditional approaches to this classical instrument and forge new pathways within the genres of ethereal gothic and modern psychedelia. The intensity of the music expresses richly felt rock and roll interpretations of her own making and influences.
"Sabine creates unusual song structures that beckon the listener to her home planet upon memorable and ethereal dark romantic pathways, worlds all their own.
Combining different keys throughout her compositions and utilizing gracefully the fully levered quality of her celtic harp, Sabine's music is theatrical and sensual; grounded and relevant to the age we are living in.
In live performance, in the magnetic quality of her live recordings, and through the medium of sound she channels an evocative energy of old world propensity that penetrates the caverns of the heart and calls deeply to the colorful spectrum of human experience and imagination."

-Sunday, June 2nd, 6pm: An evening of art and poetics: Anne Lesley Selcer // Jennifer Scappettone // Jared Joseph
An evening of art and poetics:
*Anne Lesley Selcer is a poet in the expanded field and Art Writer. She is the author of Blank Sign Book, a book of essays on art. Also forthcoming is Sun Cycle, selected by CA Conrad as winner of the First Book Prize for Cleveland State University Poetry Center. Her collection from A Book of Poems on Beauty won the Gazing Grain chapbook award. She is a currently columnist for the Jacket2 Commentary Series. Anne Lesley was Columnist in Residence for Open Space in 2014-15 and was also commissioned for an essay parallel to Zarhoulie Abdalian's SECA Award project. Other writing for galleries and museum catalogs includes Banlieusard, a commissioned book-length text for Artspeak, as well as Untitled (a treatise on form), a limited edition published by 2nd Floor Projects. More art writing can be found in Art Practical, Hyperallergic, Fillip and the Cica Museum's New Media Art 2017: Back to Nature, as well as in catalogs and monographs for the Dietch Projects, the Or gallery and Center A among others.
Her writing on literature can be found in Formes Poetiques Contemporaines, With + Stand and Jacket2, and her poems appear in The Chicago Review, Fence, Elderly, Armed Cell, The Capilano Review and Action, Yes! among other publications. Writing sometimes manifests as moving image or sound. Video, sound work and text pieces have screened or shown at the Visible Verse Festival, Krowswork gallery, Southern Exposure, Gauss PDF, and 2nd Floor Projects. Ludic Loops is her current collaborative video project.
Anne Lesley writes about images, form, beauty, invisibility, formlessness, abjection, political emotion. Recently, she's written on Juliana Huxtable, Ana Mendieta, Janet Cardiff, Ragnar Kjartansson, Dolores Dorantes, Etel Adnan, Ronaldo Wilson and others. She created and curated the innovative Chroma Reading Series for text based artists, poets and researchers when she lived in Vancouver, British Columbia.
**An artist, translator, and teacher, Jennifer Scappettone was born and raised in New York. The recipient of a PhD from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2005, she has lived in Italy, Virginia, Japan, California, and Chicago. Her collections of poetry are the chapbooks Err-Residence (2007), Beauty (Is the New Absurdity) (2007), and Thing Ode / Ode oggettuale (2008), translated into Italian with Marco Giovenale, as well as the book-length From Dame Quickly (2009) and The Republic of Exit 43 (Atelos, 2016).
In her project "Neosuprematist Webtexts" (2008–2009), Scappettone combined filmed stills and fragments of text; selections of the work were included in a show curated by the visual poet Helen White at festivals in Brussels and Ghent. Collagelike practices infuse Scappettone's From Dame Quickly, which poet Charles Bernstein described as "translation, collage, prose poem, lyric invention, periodic convolute, imploded syntax and discursive veers."
Scappettone's poetry has appeared in the anthologies The Best American Poetry 2004, The City Visible: Chicago Poetry for the New Century (2007), Zoland Annual (2008), Novas Poéticas de Resistencia (2013), EX.IT: Materiali fuori contesto (2013), The Arcadia Project: North American Postmodern Pastoral, new media section (2014), The Best American Experimental Writing 2016, and others. As a guest editor, Scappettone featured Italian poetry in the journal Aufgabe #7 in 2008, and she is editor of PennSound Italiana. Her translations of the work of Amelia Rosselli from the Italian were published in Locomotrix: Selected Poetry and Prose of Amelia Rosselli, and received the Raiziss/De Palchi Prize from the Academy of American Poets. Scappettone teaches at the University of Chicago and is a visiting scholar at Stanford University.
