LET'S TALK, a feminist conversation series on collaboration.
7 artists, 3 public conversations.

Come out to hear writers Claire Grossman, Juliana Spahr, and Stephanie Young talk about what it means to work collaboratively. They will focus on their project on power and funding for creative projects during times of uprising.

And come ready to witness and participate in dialogue: questions, thoughts and mead-drinking will occur.

SAVE THE DATE for Parts II and III:
October 19 with Arisa White + Europa Grace
November 16 with Liat Arendt + Margaret McCarthy

LET'S TALK is a three-part conversation series curated by Ellie Lobovits + Leora Fridman that explores collaboration as a feminist act. Our motivating questions include: What is process and what is product when it comes to collaborative artmaking? How does relationship effect creative process? What do we ‘owe’ one another? And, what does it mean to debunk the lonely artist genius?

We host creators from disparate art forms – poetry, digital media, and/or movement– in dialogue about collaborative projects, shared passions and ongoing discussions. The conversation will be the primary collaborative act, in real time and in public, as well as an honest reckoning with the beauty and the mess of joint work.
