The Fourth Session of Administrative Poetry

Lecture-Performance

Tuesday
February 10, 2015
7:30 P.M.

 

Ruth Estevez

Director & Curator
Gallery at REDCAT
Los Angeles
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.

Urban Exile

Urban Exile

Shadow Solo, a play by Harry Gamboa Jr., performed by Daniel Villarreal (Shadow) and Sean Carrillo (Solo), UC Santa Cruz, 1983.

The entire text of Shadow Solo, as well as other plays, fiction, essays, and poems are featured in Urban Exile: Collected Writings of Harry Gamboa Jr.

No story of Chicano art and politics is complete without Harry Gamboa Jr. and Asco. Each has played a central role in refiguring U.S. conceptual and performance art since the early 1970s. And both are wickedly funny and savvy—always filled with surprises, always in-your-face, never predictable. Urban Exile makes available for the first time the full range of Gamboa’s brilliant and biting oeuvre.
— Bryan Wolf, Professor of American Studies, Yale University
