ASTER(ix) Newsletter #8
We are thrilled to share with you our Spring issue that celebrates and recreates “Girls in Their Bedrooms,” a pop-up micro-festival of performance, installation and video. Organized and presented by From the Hive, the artistic collaboration of Gabrielle Civil and Ellen Marie Hinchcliffe, the event took place May 29-30, 2014 at The PoppyCock ArtSpace in South Minneapolis. You should also check out the beautiful poem by Qwo Li Driscoll, one of my favorite short stories by Emily Raboteau, an essay by Vanessa Perez on Julia de Burgos. And if you missed it, Alexis Pauline Gumbs says, Forget Hallmark!
