June 5th: Opening Reception for Concrete, et cetera

Here at VWVOFFKA, June is the month of concrete ideas, visual word balance, and asymmetric semantics. This month's exhibit pays tribute to the Concrete Poetry movement that took the English language by storm, forcing words off the pages and spewing them into the focal point of physical reality. But that was born over half a century ago. Now along with the advent of new technologies, the pen is in a different hand, bringing new light to the fluidity of language. Concrete, et cetera will include works by Masha Badinter, Claire Buchanan, Sofie Hodara, Marshall James Kavanaugh, Matt Neff, Ingrid Pimsner, Steve Streisguth, and Jenna Wilchinsky.

Also special live words by:
Ghosts of Pasha
Dark Surfers and the Yawns
+1 more tba

Refreshments will be provided. Opening starts at 6pm.
