This lecture will take place at the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Garden.
In this lecture, Renee Gladman will wander through the writing of the four novels of her Ravicka series, examining the deeper science behind two architectural phenomena that characterize the city-state: migrating buildings and invisible structures. The lecture will conclude with the premiere of a sound piece, specifically commissioned for this project, composed and performed by Mauricio Pauly.
Author of the poetry collection A Picture-Feeling (2005), Renee Gladman has also published several works of prose, including Event Factory (2010), The Activist (2003), Juice (2000), and Arlem (1994), and a monograph of drawings, Prose Architectures (2017). She has edited Leon Works, an experimental prose chapbook series, as well as the Leroy chapbook series. Originally from Atlanta, Gladman lives in Massachusetts and teaches at Brown University.
