Join artist Abbra Kotlarczyk and poet Autumn Royal for an afternoon of spoken performance, presenting poetic and auto-fictive texts central to the exhibition reading room anti-aria for ater-. The performance will draw out key themes from the exhibition, activating an operatic and dialogic response to the emotional terrain of gendered and familial experience, set against the climatic intensities of a fuel-loaded planet.
