Two notes about Eileen

1/ The dynamic and illustrious Eileen Myles is coordinating a SILENT HAPPENING at the end of June
that will undoubtedly be an event to remember. Details listed below!

2/ Myles is one of my favorite authors, who will, in addition to hosting this event, also be celebrating

this summer
the release of her new essay book, The Importance of Being Iceland (MIT Press):

So if you are a member of the Myles Fan Club as I am, you will want to get in on all of the above.


WHAT ?!: TUESDAYS ON THE TERRACE: THE COLLECTION OF SILENCE
WHERE: 155 St. & BWAY
WHEN: June 30, 7PM
WHY: PEACE, AIMLESSNESS, RELIEF, SOLDARITY, RESISTANCE, SOLACE, IRONY,
FRIVOLITY, HAD ENOUGH

Being invited by Dia to curate a performance for a summer evening
vaguely in response to Zoe’s show and the Hispanic Museum’s collection
I have invited five poets who invited five other poets (so there’s 25
of us, names below.) Invited as well are The Village Zendo, soprano
Juliana Snapper, dancer Christine Elmo and four cohorts and about 40
kids from PS 4 conducted by poets Julie Patton and Christine Hou and
finally a life drawing group from Brooklyn known as F>A>R>T>S
(Friends of the Fine Arts) ; all will converge to sit, move, read and
perform SILENTLY for one hour on the Hispanic Museum’s incredibly
spacious and evocative Audubon Plaza. You as audience are invited to
come up and stroll amongst this silent happening at your own genial
pace. You’re urged to dress vividly & shamelessly as if you were
attending a wedding or a renaissance fair or a nature hike, an art
opening, poetry reading or to spray-paint things on your roof. At 8;15
the silence will end and morph into a decent party.
