Free with museum admission

Organized by Elena Harvey Collins, Curatorial Assistant

This program will take place in MOCA's Marjorie and Anselm Talalay Classroom on the third floor.

image word song looks at some of the ways that poetry and language are finding expression, expanded definition, and new methods of distribution in the work of young artists working with video, performance and songwriting.  Included are  a selection of poet Steve Roggenbuck’s YouTube published video-performances that weave together stream-of-consciousness narratives reflecting on contemporary life; documentation of a new multi-media performance work and a listening post by writer, artist, and songwriter Lex Brown; and hand-drawn animations that give visual form to poetry by sculptor and animator Lilli Carré.

Artists include:

  • Lex Brown (1989, Oakland) lives and works in New Haven, CT
  • Lilli Carré (1983, Los Angeles) lives and works in Chicago
  • Steve Roggenbuck (1987, Michigan) lives and works in Tucson, AZ.

SCHEDULE:
