Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts hosts "Ligatures: Authors and Artists in Conversation"
"Ligatures: Authors and Artists in Conversation" celebrates the literary and visual arts and the intersections between the two. Through readings, presentations, and performances by Ilya Kaminsky, Clarissa Tossin, Autumn Knight, and Jennifer Scappettone, guests can expect to learn more about four phenomenal artists and their work as poets, translators, performers and scholars.
Through conversation with the audience and one another, the speakers will answer questions about craft and the artistic process, especially how art moves from an idea to a "thing," and the practices and habits that keep an artist's work juicy.
The event also celebrates the release of Gulf Coast's newest issue, 27.1, which features the work of Antena, Tony Hoagland, Caitlin Horrocks, Juan Villoro and many others.
