Quail Rise: R's Queens
3 PM, Mar 15, 2014
Queens Museum, Unisphere Gallery, 2nd Fl

My name & time: a Queens of the mind.

There’s an occult meaning in initials.

To “read in splendour” between these two lines from Robert Seydel‘s BOOK OF RUTH (Siglio, 2011), in which the eponymous Ruth Greisman “writes”: JC, MD, will never understand our distance from life – they’re pretenders in that. “Writes” in quotes because RG, like the Queens she shared with Joseph Cornell (through whom she “met” Marcel Duchamp), is of the mind (tho Ruth was Real: Robert’s aunt and, in his words “the artist in the Book”). For Quail rise, read R’s Queens. For Marcel Duchamp, Mina Pam Dick will read. For Joseph Cornell, Jane Carver will sound. For Robert Seydel, Ross Simonini will sing. For Formulas & Flowers, Farnoosh Fathi. Featuring a sub-sub library a library at my ear and other special guests. Organized by Emmy Catedral and Nathaniel Otting.


JANE CARVER is the Artist-in-Residence at The Association for Cultural Equity: The Alan Lomax Archive and co-founder of the performance series Low Stakes at Hunter College. She sings with the Bulgarian women's choir, Yasna Voices. 

EMMY CATEDRAL hosts salons about the universe and is the founder of the Explorers Club of Enrique de Malacca. She is a 2014 Artist-in-Residence at The Center For Book Arts. 

MINA PAM DICK (aka Hildebrand Pam Dick, Gregoire Pam Dick et al.) is the author of Delinquent (Futurepoem Books, 2009). Her writing has appeared in Tantalum, BOMB, The Brooklyn Rail, Aufgabe #9, The Recluse, Everyday Genius and TRY!, and is forthcoming in EOAGH and Mrs. Maybe. She lives in New York City.

FARNOOSH FATHI's poems have appeared in Tin House, Boston Review, High Chair, Fence, and other journals. Her translations of poetry have appeared in Circumference and Jacket2, her interviews with poets can be found in The Brooklyn Rail, and her essay on Emily Dickinson’s influence on contemporary poetry can be found in The Emily Dickinson Journal. 

NATHANIEL OTTING is a sub-sub librarian for Same Text. The Wrong Book is forthcoming in 1913. Some poems can be found in Skein, The Poetry Project Newsletter, and notnostrums.

ROSS SIMONINI is a founder of the music and art project, NewVillager. He is the interviews editor of The Believer magazine, the executive producer of KCRW’s The Organist, and the creator of Blood Pillow, an audio project at Clocktower Gallery. He regularly contributes to the New York Times, Frieze, 2013. Various food, spices, and graphite on Interview, Art in America, and a book of his interviews with artists will be released by Picturebox books in 2014.
