Lineage: Call & Response 2015

George Mason University - Wed, 09/16/2015 - 10:28
Call & Response is an annual collaboration between writers and visual artists, in which one calls and one responds. The result is a set of paired works, resonating with each other, demonstrating the interplay of artistic media, and speaking of our times. The Call & Response exhibits began as a collaboration between professors Helen Frederick (School of Art) and Susan Tichy (Department of English); last year was the first year the exhibits were displayed in Fenwick Gallery. This year, Frederick and Tichy passed the exhibition curation to Mason alumni M. Mack, Marcos L. Martínez, Anne Smith, and current graduate student Qinglan Wang.

For the seventh Call & Response, visual artists and writers collaborated along the theme of Lineage. Lineage, applied to the conversation between art, literature, culture, and self, asks the question: what is the legacy of art and speech in our everyday lives? In society? How does artistic expression in and alongside social movements result in a solidarity of tradition, a larger communal identity?

The exhibition of the created works will be held in Fenwick Gallery, September 20 – October 30.  On September 30, the artists and writers will discuss their works in the Fenwick Library 2nd Floor Conference Room, 2-4pm. This event is part of the annual Fall for the Book festival.

A Reading by Kseniya Melnik

The George Washington University - Tue, 09/15/2015 - 09:49
September 15, 2015

Thursday, September 24
7:30pm
Gelman Library, Room 702

The 2015 Jenny McKean Moore Writer-in-Residence is Kseniya Melnik, whose debut linked short story collection Snow in May was published in 2014.  The collection was on the short list for the International Dylan Thomas Prize and the long list for the Frank O'Connor International Short Story Award.  She has been interviewed in a range of venues about her work, including on NPR. Professor Melnik was born in Magadan, Russia, where the stories in Snow in May are set.  Professor Melnik will read from both Snow in May as well as some of her new work. 

The Jenny McKean Moore Fund was established in honor of the late Jenny Moore, who was a playwrighting student at GW and who left in trust a fund that has, for almost forty years, encouraged the teaching and study of Creative Writing in the English Department, allowing us to bring a poet, novelist, playwright, or creative non-fiction writer to campus each year. While in residence, the writer brings a unique experience to the GW community, teaching a free community workshop for adults along with Creative Writing classes for GW students.
