Poetry Reading: Maria Barnas and Danielle Rosen

MoCP, 600 S. Michigan Ave.

Poetry Reading: Maria Barnas and Danielle Rosen

The poets will be reading in response to the current exhibition on view, Viviane Sassen: UMBRA.

Maria Barnas is a Dutch writer, poet and artist whose work centers on the myriad ways description can shape reality. Barnas wrote a series of poems to accompany UMBRA, which she will recite during this event. Barnas studied at the Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam and in 2008, she was presented with the Cees Buddingh Prize for her first collection of poetry Twee Zonnen (2003). In 2014, she was awarded the Anna Bijn prize for her collection of poems titled Jaja de oerknal (2013).

Patricia Rose, created by artist Danielle Rosen, is a performative platform where identity is a collaborative context. With Rose, collaborators engage in explorations of body and voice, subject and monitor, human and animal, self and other. For this iteration, Danielle Rosen has invited Maggie Crowley and Carris Adams and together, they will perform a piece that is in response to Barnas’ Hurtling.

This event is presented in partnership with the Poetry Center of Chicago.
