The After School Arts Program (ASAP)
ASAP presents a project by Marcus Civin
Artists and Writers, and Artists Writing, and Artists on Writing, and Writers on Art, and Artists and Writers between Art and Writing, and Artists as Writers, and Writers as Artists, and Art for Writers, and Writing to Artists

Join us for something between a poetry reading, an artist talk and an art history lecture.

This afternoon of conversation and presentations will ask: how do artists and writers form relationships between the verbal and the visual? Are there parallel trajectories, mutual problems? More specifically, how do artists and writers approach language and history? ... How can various languages (political speech, scientific language, art theory, etc.) inform and lend form to contemporary art and writing? Also, how might various histories (histories of artists and writers, American histories, activist histories...) directly influence production or lead towards necessary abstractions. What is the language of a fading color? We will imagine certain subtexts, fantasize a few found photographs, and reconstruct some body language... through art and writing."

After School Arts Program (ASAP) provides innovative and experimental arts programming for artists, curators, historians and critics interested in continuing their education in the visual arts.

ASAP is a not-for-profit community service offering lectures, salons, workshops, critiques, exhibitions, film screenings and publications. Dedicated to producing an educational and creative space outside of the university system, ASAP is a bridge between the rigors of academia and the plasticity of the natural world. Supporting programs/curricula that might not exist with in a university setting, ASAP is committed to experimentation and the ideology that the current status quo for arts education is not the most effective method for engaging contemporary audiences. ASAP does not advocate a superior method for communicating ideas visually but rather promotes alternative modes of understanding.
