Lynn Marie Kirby: Collaborations with Etel Adnan
Please note, this event has expired.
Art Lecture: a special presentation about a special artistic and intellectual collaboration
“To be with Etel is to be walking under the linden trees, discussing an idea, feeling the light as it comes in through the leaves with her mountain in the distance—her spirit seeing too, not afraid to say something, meeting the big picture and its small shadow, and of her being her with us in these pages.” — Lynn Marie Kirby, Under the Linden Trees; Etel Adnan: Premonition, Kelsey Street Press: Berkeley, 2014.
Join Kirby for a special presentation and reading that will touch on their various collaborations and forthcoming publication. Adnan is a Lebanese, Paris-based artist, essayist, and poet, who was a longtime resident of Marin County for several decades and is known for her works inspired by her relationship to Mount Tamalpais. From 1958 to 1972, Adnan taught philosophy at Dominican College of San Rafael, California.
The San Francisco-based Kirby will perform Transmissions (2017), a video and live reading inspired by her time spent with Adnan in Paris, incorporating their collaborative drawings and open-ended conversation about Mount Tamalpais, truth, ritual, coherence, and democracy.
This program will also screen their collaborative short video shot in Marin County, Under the Linden Trees (2001/2019). The piece was first presented as a joint performance in 2002, and will premiere in the Library as a single channel video.
