An Evening With Joe
11th November 2012 6-8pm at Satis House in conjunction with Outburst Queer Arts Festival
An evening celebrating the life of Joe Brainard, a relatively unknown but prolific twentieth century queer artist and writer.
Brainard’s amazing body of work included assemblages, collages, drawing, and painting, as well as designs for book and album covers, theatrical sets and costumes. In particular, Brainard broke new ground in using comics as a poetic medium in his collaborations with other New York School poets.
Along with selected readings from his literary works, there will be a screening of Matt Wolf’s recent film, I Remember: A Film About Joe Brainard, which uses archival film footage and recorded interviews to produce an inventive biography about friendship, nostalgia, and the strange wonders of memory.
