Gurlesque

Here’s an event coming up at Columbia. If you’re in Chicago, you should check it out! (Full disclosure: Arielle Greenberg oversaw my poetry-comix study, “Fuligin Ink.” It was fantastic.)

Arielle Greenberg & Lara Glenum Present
the Gurlesque

with a reading by
Catherine Wagner

Wednesday, October 20
5:00p.m.
Hokin Hall
623 S. Wabash, Room 109

Developed by Arielle Greenberg in 2001, “Gurlesque” is a theoretical term describing an emerging Third Wave feminist aesthetic that foregrounds the girly in work that is subversive, carnal, performative, grotesque, and brash. With poet-critic Lara Glenum, Greenberg is the editor of an anthology of contemporary poetry and visual art that uses the Gurlesque as its lens and impetus. At the October 2oth event, both editors will be present to discuss the aesthetic followed by a reading of Gurlesque poems by Catherine Wagner.

The event is free and open to the public. Book sales at the event will be cash only.
