Karen Finley: Reading
September 18, 2013 | 6–8 pm
4102 Fannin St., Houston, TX 77004
Artist Karen Finley will give a dramatic reading of four selected excerpts from We Keep Our Victims Ready, first performed at DiverseWorks over two evenings in October 1989. About the oppressed in contemporary America, We Keep Our Victims Ready is a confrontational and powerful work of art that Finley has reframed in the context of current social and political issues: war, reproductive rights, freedom of expression, and identity.
Finley’s reading will be followed by a discussion and Q & A moderated by DiverseWorks Assistant Curator Rachel Cook and UH Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Jessica Santone.
