POETRY AND PETRI DISHES
Fri Oct 29, 2010

On the penultimate evening of Elaine Whittaker’s stunning bioart installation “(in)trepid cultures” (October 6-30, 2010), the following ten poets will be giving a group reading on the theme Beauty and Terror: Leanne Averbach, Barry Dempster, Carla Hartsfield, Sue MacLeod, Steve McOrmond, Sachiko Murakami, Ruth Roach Pierson, John Reibetanz, Daniel Scott Tysdal, and RM Vaughan. Complementing Whittaker’s exploration of the strikingly beautiful forms and colours present in the world of the salt bacterium Halobacterium sp.NRC-1, each poet will read a poem of her/his choosing on the paradox of astonishing beauty’s coexistence with the terrifying.

Friday, October 29, 2010  5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Readings start at 6:00 p.m. 

Red Head Gallery, 401 Richmond St. W.  Suite 115, Toronto (located just east of Spadina)
