Stonecroft Symposium: The Baroness Elsa Project // Poetry and Performance: Gathering and Conversation
Join us for a celebration of poetry and performance with artists ray ferreira, Taqralik Partridge and Carol Sawyer. The artists will perform selections from their own poetry as well as historical works by Baroness Elsa.

Exhibition co-curator Irene Gammel will then lead a conversation on the intersections of these contemporary artists’ work with the Baroness’ groundbreaking artistic practice, which was infused with the performance and poetry of the everyday.

This gathering is presented as part of Stonecroft Symposium: The Baroness Elsa Project.
