About Book Launch: For the Love of Endings by Ben Purkert — in conversation w/ Meghan O’Rourke 

How does it feel to lose your planet, your lover, yourself? Purkert’s debut collection, For the Love of Endings, tests what connects us to this earth and to each other. Light-footed and dark-humored, his brilliantly crafted poems examine “the gap / between the world & how / people paint it: dark, distant, there / for the taking.” He makes us look at our disintegrating world head on and see what we’ve done to it, and what it has done to us.

About Caroline Wayne: Pretty Real 

The exhibition Pretty Real by Fellowship Artist Caroline Wayne presents a collection of embellished sculptures depicting scenes from dreams that symbolically recount her own history of early childhood incest. Wayne uses meticulous beadwork in its apparent beauty, containment, and laborious process in order to translate her lifelong efforts to reshape a traumatic past into more palatable innuendos than stark ugly truth. Though rife with phallic weaponry, contentious battle scenes, or shadowy figures in the midst of an assault, her illustrations include playful symbols of childhood and recreation applied in soft shining colors making otherwise horrifying revelations seem only attractively unsettling. The exhibition

This mock negotiation will feature attorneys who are making these deals
