The Session of Administrative Poetry (Jornada de Poesía Administrativa) is a conceptual poetry event organized by artist Vicente Razo at the Gallery at REDCAT.  In this convening, with a mixture of enthusiasm and melancholy, the worn and weary legacy of the art administration is invoked, mended and stroked.  This series delves into issues such as the dispensation of bylaws, incorporation, clerical correspondence, the call for applications, or tax exemptions as the pillars and props of artistic practice in the 21st century.  These poetic readings act as a celebration of those “magical” moments when art projects acquire a certified legal body and public liability, when a person turns into a corporation, or when a proposal turns into cash.  In previous editions of  The Session of Administrative Poetry tax receipts, articles of incorporations, bureaucratic correspondence, disclaimers and legal contracts have been read.
