Thursday 15 January 2015
7 – 9pm, Meeting Room 2
This salon is led by the firstsite Associate Artists, who are in residence in the galleries from 12 – 17 January. The selected text is Rough Spirits, the third issue of the new periodical Different Skies. The salon will feature a discussion session on the text, followed by an introduction to the editors of Different Skies, who will be discussing the ethos of this small and exciting new publication.
‘Different Skies is a platform for new experimental writing. Whether this takes the form of criticism, poetry, fiction or something beyond these categories, Different Skies champions writing that pushes language to its limits. At the same time, in the face of cynicism, Different Skies champions sincerity and feeling, rejecting the crude separation of form and content. Different Skies is a home for writing full of images that faces the world and listens to its stories.’
Copies of Rough Spirits will be available to buy from the firstsite Reception desk, priced £7. Refreshments will be served. Places are FREE, but must be booked in advance.
