Reading Project with Judith Brotman

Feb 11, 2:00PM – 4:00PM

Artist Judith Brotman has invited twelve participants to read aloud to her. The sole stipulation is they choose a text that is personally meaningful. The selected texts are revealed as read by each guest, creating impromptu juxtapositions and textual interconnections. Each participant will read for 5-6 minutes. Conversation and cake will follow. All are welcome to listen.

Judith Brotman is an artist and educator from Chicago. Her work has included mixed media installations and theatrical immersive environments which occupy a space between sculpture and drawing. Recent work also includes language/text based conceptual projects which are meditations on the possibility of transformation. The Reading Project stems from her interests in the impact of the written and spoken word and the complex nature of human motivations.
