Calendar: Type In with EXILE Books: Sarah Maria Dos Santos

Event Description

EXILE Books presents a new project at PAMM in conjunction with From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM's Collection—an exhibition featuring work acquired by the museum from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry. EXILE Books has installed three vintage typewriters near the entrance of the exhibition and has invited local artists, writers, poets, and the general public to create "typings" inspired by the works on view. A selection of these creations will be included in a forthcoming publication by EXILE Books.

The second evening of the series features artist Sarah Maria Dos Santos, who will activate the typewriters on January 4, 2018. Other dates of activation are February 1, March 1, and April 5. Future guest artists will be announced soon!

Sarah Maria Dos Santos was born in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil in 1989 and moved to South Florida at a young age. Sarah Maria primarily works as a poet in Miami. This year alone Sarah Maria has performed street poetry in Miami, Los Angeles, Whitewater, New York, Antibes, Paris, London, Florence, Rome, Escource, and Couze-et-Saint-Front. She has also written for The Last Bookstore and Dalton Warehouse. She has intertwined poetry with her passion for painting, music, performance - playing the typewriter, drums, keyboard, harmonica, synthesizer, and puppeteer. Dos Santos is inspired by keeping a light mind and open eye, her interest in nature and love influence her art.
