At the SAM I Am (Seattle Art Museum)
I am uber excited, I was invited to participate in this event! My first appearance as my poet self. My nom de plume is Sudo Nym. Which proves to be a rather extraordinary pseudonym as Sudo is my birth name. I am descendant of 13th century, Edo Japan, Samurai.
An Impasse of Poets . SAM Live installation with 100 poets SAM Downtown | Seattle Art Museum 8-9PM Thursday 11 June 2009
Experience guerilla poetry at The Seattle Art Museum this summer. At 8pm on Thursday June 11, artist and poet A. K. “Mimi” Allin will present her first of three events at SAM Downtown – An Impasse of Poets.
Poets will move through the museum, gather around specific works and drape themselves over The Grand Staircase while reciting poetry from memory and in response to the artwork. The poet will physically and verbally embody SAM’s galleries and artworks. Their voices will come together to form whispering walls—impasses—of poetry here and there.
Come to the SAM on June 11th. Experience “An Impasse” first-hand in the galleries or hang out in the lobby and listen for free. Wireless microphones will broadcast the group’s poetic output, in live time, to the main lobby (Brotman Forum). As you listen, imagine the above mass of poets enveloping your favorite work, zigzagging down the halls and infusing the art you love with their words. An Impasse of Poets will perform 6 times over the course of an hour, creating impasses with their bodies and words on all 4 levels of the SAM.
IMPASSE brings together 100 poets to make one cohesive voice– the voice of the poet. The group will address SAM spaces, exhibits and works of art. The voice of the poet will mingle with the voice of the art and of the museum. We invite you to see and move along with us.
