On the occasion of the third printing and re-re-relaunch of her book, Second Thoughts, artist and writer Angie Keefer will chew gum and juggle while conducting a poetry workshop* alongside a digressive talk on her work and other subjects. With accompanying visuals.
*The workshop channels collective energy through a painless, even delightful, daisy-chain process, ingesting, chewing, dissolving, and reconstituting visual and verbal stimuli as legitimate poetry. Modest audience participation is expected, but no one will be held publicly accountable for their efforts, so don’t let that dissuade you—prior knowledge and skills are neither necessary nor a boon. A pen or pencil would be helpful, though.
Angie Keefer (b. 1977) is an artist, writer, teacher, amateur engineer, and part-time psycheographer. Her work has been included in Greater New York (2016) and the Whitney Biennial (2014), as well as numerous, even more impressive international exhibitions in Europe and South America, plus a handful of solo things at real museums, all without the aid of commercial representation or significant social media presence. A hefty collection of her writing called Second Thoughts has just been published by Kunstverein Amsterdam and Plug In ICA, featuring a deluxe, double-signature, full-color image section, extensive rewrites, and other bonus material.
