Please join us for our monthly literary showcase, presented virtually via Zoom for 2021. 21c Louisville is proud to partner with Spalding’s School of Writing and The Louisville Review to present Voice and Vision. This seasonal forum, held on the third Thursday of each month, May-August, provides an opportunity for writers to share samples of their work with each other and the public. Each month will feature a variety of readings by poets and writers with ties to Kentucky, along with a look at highlights from the current contemporary art exhibitions at 21c Louisville.
The final program for 2021 on August 19 will showcase distinguished authors and poets with regional connections who have new book releases. Readers include Whitney Collins, Angela Jackson-Brown, Tina Parker, Jonathan Weinert, and Kentucky Poet Laureate Crystal Wilkinson. Sena Jeter Naslund and Amy Foos Kapoor will co-host.
We will begin this month’s program with a special guest, artist Anne Peabody, whose site-specific installation Wheel of Fortune is suspended from the ceiling in the 21c Louisville Atrium Gallery. Commissioned for this space in 2010, the installation is a physical record inspired from the artist’s memory of the tornado that leveled much of Louisville on April 3rd, 1974. The work consists of thousands of hand carved wooden objects including broken eggs, flashlights, dolls’ heads, turkey basters, and batteries well as found glass objects that swirl together to form a massive funnel cloud. “I wanted to look at the clash between devastation and beauty, and the unexpected consequences of disaster,” says the artist. “I started from my own childhood memories of the 1974 tornado, which left my house untouched but my neighborhood devastated and my yard filled with other people’s possessions. While Wheel of Fortune grew out of events in own my life, I want to speak to the experience of anyone touched by the bizarre dislocations of calamity.”
