The Sorry Series: Kevin Killian and Emily Lacy
As an adjunct program to On Apology (April 19-May 19, 2012), The Sorry Series will investigate public and private iterations of the apology, examining how apologies are formed, their subtlety or lack thereof, and their potential, if any, to accomplish real change.
The first two performances will coincide with the opening reception of On Apology, with a poetry reading by Kevin Killian and a sound performance by Emily Lacy, where she will perform a processional apology from the perspective of a mythic corporation lurking in contemporary imagination.
Kevin Killian is one of the original "New Narrative" writers of the 1980s. His most recent books include an edition of Jack Spicer's collected poems (which he edited); Impossible Princess, a book of stories published by City Lights; and a second volume of his Selected Amazon Reviews. He lives in San Francisco.
Emily Lacy is a folk and electronic sound artist generating works in music, film, and other media. Lacy is currently living, working and recording in LA. She has performed in exhibitions at PS1 MOMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hammer Museum, the Walker Art Center, and LACMA, in addition to various DIY spaces all throughout America. She works very closely with Machine Project.
