High Art/Low Language: Experiments in Poetic Style

March 3, 2011
11 am
Kemper Art Museum

*PLEASE NOTE* DATE CHANGE FROM MARCH 4 to MARCH 3!

Elizabeth Peyton’s subjects shift from Oscar Wilde to Andre 3000, from ultra-eminent Shakespeare to hip-hop antagonist Eminem. In Ghost high and low culture share a wall, the boundaries between them blurred and broken. In this interactive creative writing workshop, we will consider these boundaries as they apply to language at large. What “counts” as art and what cannot? Led by Eileen G’Sell, instructor of English at Washington University and publications assistant at the Museum, this free workshop will last two hours and include lunch.

Space is limited and registration is required by Monday, February 28; please use THIS FORM to submit your registration.
