This event will be a performance, and discussion, of a collaboration between poet John Matthias, printmaker Jean Dibble, and critic Robert Archambeau. It is based on their book Revolutions: A Collaboration, which reworks texts and events from the Russian modernist Osip Mandelstam in three genres, setting up conversations between past and present, Russia and America, modernism and contemporary experiment, the visual and the verbal, the creative and the critical. Matthias' poetic sequence revisits Mandelstam, finding parallels with his own experiences, while Dibble and Archambeau respond to Matthias' work. The three will perform sections of their book-length collaboration, then discuss the process of working together across genres in an all-too-rare collaborative process.
