There are so many arts things happening in town tonight that it just seems like a better idea to combine them in one post than to keep posting them separately. Duplicate info will be deleted shortly.
ABSTrACTS/RéSuMÉS: An Exercise in Poetry
Thursday January 28, 7 pm
Performances at 7:30 pm
Club SAW, 67 Nicholas Street, Ottawa

In the context of the exhibition Fibred Optics, the Ottawa Art Gallery and The A B Series present a reading by six poets who transform Michele Provost's installation into an evening of performance poetry. Provost's visual art installation references text from contemporary art criticism and forms the raw material for the commissioned poets' projects.
The A B Series specializes in presenting readings of performance, sound and experimental poetry by professional local, national and international artists. For more on The A B Series, please visit www.abseries.org.
