Saturday, July 9, 5-7 pm: Opening Reception for Sarah Thibault’s solo exhibition Iceland Diaries and the special project Memories of Future Fires by Tali Weinberg.
Wednesday, July 13, 5 pm: Conversation with Sarah Thibault + Kathryn Savage. In celebration of Sarah Thibault’s new exhibition “Iceland Diaries” and the release of Savage’s forthcoming book “Groundglass” (Coffee House Press), Dreamsong is pleased to host a conversation that will delve into parallel trips to Iceland, the relationship between grief and artistic production, and the role of the land in each of their respective projects. “Groundglass takes shape atop a polluted aquifer in Minnesota, beside trains that haul fracked crude oil, as Kathryn Savage confronts the transgressions of U.S. Superfund sites and brownfields against land, groundwater, neighborhoods, and people. Drawing on her own experiences growing up on the fence lines of industry and the parallel realities of raising a young son while grieving a father dying of a cancer with known environmental risk factors, Savage traces concentric rings of connection—between our bodies, one another, our communities, and our ecosystem.” RSVP (limited seats): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/conversation-sarah-thibault-kathryn-savage-tickets-373618191067
Saturday, July 16, 7 pm: Event: Hearkening #3, an evening of film + music curated by Luke Martin + Andy Graydon. This the 3rd program of Hearkening, a four-evening series hosted by Dreamsong that pairs short film screenings with live music performances. These combinations bring artists and works into a dialogue that traverses themes, regions and forms to encourage a broader process of listening. Not limited to the sonic, this approach to listening includes visual, somatic and imaginal registers, and involves an opening toward and sharing oneself with another. The term hearkening is used by the writer Lawrence Kramer to describe the kind of attention that turns listening into a transformational act, both for the sounding subject and for the listener. “When we hearken to a sound we engage in a movement toward a beyond, an elsewhere, and one that can never be fully attained. This drift is our means of belonging to the world.” (Lawrence Kramer, The Hum of the World). The series is co-organized by Andy Graydon and Luke Martin. Program #3 features live performances by Paul Metzger, Derek Monypeny and Sara Pajunen; and films by Tia-Simone Gardner and Monica Haller, Richard Wiebe, Sara Pajunen and Steve Rowell.
