Calendar: The Words of Others

Event Description

​Join us for the second full live reading of artist Leon Ferrari's seminal 1967 publication Palabras ajenas (The Words of Others)—an important Vietnam-era anti-war piece written in the form of a dramatic script that explorers the language of authoritarianism. Palabras ajenas was Ferrari's first literary collage, composed as an extensive dialogue among various characters, including President Lyndon B. Johnson, Adolf Hitler, Pope Paul VI, and God. The resulting chorus will be read over the course of eight hours by local community figures, artists, and actors and will take place in conjunction with the exhibition opening of The Words of Others: León Ferrari and Rhetoric in Times of War.​

Afterwards, join us on the terrace for PAMM Third Thursday: Poplife Social featuring Richie Hell Live.
