Salvage Series at Open Laboratories

Please join us on Friday, June 19, 2015 for the first event of the SALVAGE SERIES at OPEN LABORATORIES presented at WUHO Gallery’s Spatial Research Facility featuring poet / curator / environmental activists Allison Cobb and Jen Coleman.

Friday, June 19
6-8 PM
WUHO Gallery
6518 Hollywood Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90028

As “price of admission,” the public is invited to reap and contribute language from their garbage (cardboard, tin, plastic, paper, cellophane, etc.) preferably washed of debris and measuring 1-inch tall or higher.  These words will be collected at the entrance slit and incorporated into an installation in progress in the gallery called Leave Loom.

Allison Cobb is the author of Born2 (Chax Press) about her hometown of Los Alamos, New Mexico, and Green-Wood (Factory School) about a ninteenth-century emery in Brooklyn, new York.  The New York Times called Green-Wood “a gorgeous, subtle, idiosyncratic gem.” She works for the Enrionmental Defense Fund and lives in Portland, Oregon, where she co-curateds The Switch reading series.  She is at work on a chronicle of garbage called Plastic: an autobiography.

Jen Coleman is a Portland poet and member of the Spare Room reading series collective. She ran the In Your Ear reading series in DC in the 90s and was a co-editor of Pom Pom literary journal in New York in the 00’s.  Her book Psalms for Dogs and Sorcerers was published in 2014 by Trembling Pillow Press in New Orleans.

The Salvage Series is part of WUHO Institute Open Laboratories.  For the summer of 2015, the WUHO Gallery on Hollywood Boulevard is being transformed into an open laboratory. Work on emerging spatial environments will provoke salons, workshops, and performances by residents, rogue scientists, and radical philologists.  The Salvage Series is co-curated by Jennifer Scappettone.
