Read with me

at Texas Vignette Art Fair, the Women's Museum, Dallas, 2019

Experiment/participatory performance with people, texts, and furniture.

Visitors were invited to bring a text they liked, in whatever format they preferred (paper, digital, etc.), or to select a text from those I brought, and then to choose either to read the text to me or to have me read it to them. The reading was to last 3 minutes (or longer if agreed).

This was an experiment exploring one-on-one reading – but in public, kinds of intimacy/distance and ways of being in a “bubble” together, or not; levels of internal and external “performance”; and kinds of reading; among other things.

Over the course of the fair, we constructed an “exquisite” reading, with many different readers reading many parts of different texts. Additional information here.
