Poetry Reading: Public/Private

February 3, 2013

Readers (from left to right): Tyler Mills, Sandy Marchetti, Shevaun Brannigan, CM Burroughs, Naomi Buck Palagi and Carrie McGath.

“From the exploding popularity of reality television and celebrity culture to the U.S. government's ever-growing presence in our homes, schools, and community spaces through Patriot Act-sanctioned surveillance, the twenty-first century has seen enormous shifts in cultural and political conceptions of what is considered private and what is considered public, both in the United States and world-wide. We as individuals are losing control over what is seen and what is unseen; known and unknown; public and private.

How do these shifts manifest in our daily lives? Who is most affected and why? How do poets address these changes, whether through illuminating, embracing or actively working against them?"
Curated by Nina Corwin and documented by audio recordist Kurt Heintz, featured readers include Shevaun Brannigan, CM Burroughs, Tyler Mills, Sandra Marchetti, Carrie McGath, and Naomi Palagi.
Recorded live Sunday, February 3, 2013 at the Woman Made Gallery.
