A Ballad for Etel Adnan

Join Tripwire editor David Buuck at SFMOMA for an exploration of Etel Adnan’s relationship to Bay Area creative communities at a night of poetry and musical performances. Artist Simone Fattal and poets David Buuck, Nick Hoff, and Denise Newman will share selections from both Adnan’s writing and their own. The evening’s festivities continue with a performance by experimental harpist and composer Zeena Parkins and percussionist William Winant inspired by Adnan’s long relationship to color, abstraction, and the California landscape.

Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series:
Jen Hofer & John Pluecker Reading & Presentation

The Tripwire Cross-Cultural Poetics Series, a partnership with The Poetry Center, debuts this month with a two-day series by poet-translator-activists Jen Hofer and John Pluecker, who collectively organize Antena, a language justice and language experimentation collaborative focusing on writing, art- and book-making, translating, interpreting, and language justice. Hofer and Pluecker, visiting respectively from Los Angeles and Houston, will read from their own work, then present their work around Antena the following evening; both events are free and open to the public.
