Exquisite Pensacola: A Corpse in Six Parts


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Join on Friday, April 13 for an evening of food, drink, art, poetry, music, performance and creative collaboration!

"Exquisite Pensacola: A Corpse in Six Parts" draws on two important inspirations for The Typewriter Project: the historical avant-garde and the participatory art practices that began emerging in the 1960s. It is a "happening" that pays tribute to the "Cafe Voltaire," the cabaret in which Dada was born.

"Exquisite Pensacola: A Corpse in Six Parts" will include student-created visual art, poetry, and performance pieces, as well as audience collaboration on brand new works. Joseph Herring, UWF associate professor of art, will also transform typewriters into musical instruments.

All of the artwork at the event incorporates the "exquisite corpse" poem that Pensacola created during The Typewriter Project installation. Come on down on April 13 to help us revive that corpse and make it new!

The event will be held April 13 from 6:30 - 8 p.m. at Voices of Pensacola. Food and drink will be available throughout the event.

This event is sponsored by the UWF Graphic Design Program; UWF English; and UWF College of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities.
