This is happening next month. Get ready:
Tuesday, December 13, 2011, 6:30 pm
Annual Belladonna* Benefit Performance and Live Auction
Location: Hi Art! 227 West 29th Street, 4th Floor (between 7th & 8th) New York, NY 10001
The evening will showcase a performance by Anne Waldman and Ambrose Bye, live auction by renowned auctioneer Erin Ward of Star Benefit Auctions with special assistant Amy King, a silent auction, and a dance performance by the A.O. Movement Collective.
The auction and benefit will support Belladonna*s 2012 season of publications and events, which share a theme of caring for the material realities of poets, viewing a publishing project holistically. We're referring to 2012 as The Year of Material Lives, and we plan to host combination readings/dinners with ample time set aside to discuss the economic and social concerns of writers, artists, publishers, and other creators. In addition to continuing our commemorative chaplet series, we hope to publish five full-length books of hybrid and experimental work in the coming year including new work by Julie Patton, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, and Tonya Foster.
