Larry Starr: Listening to Bob Dylan. Experiencing and re-experiencing Dylan’s music

Venerated for his lyrics, Bob Dylan in fact is a songwriting musician with a unique mastery of merging his words with music and performance.

Larry Starr cuts through pretention and myth to provide a refreshingly holistic appreciation of Dylan’s music. Ranging from celebrated classics to less familiar compositions, Starr invites readers to reinvigorate their listening experiences by sharing his own—sometimes approaching a song from a fresh perspective, sometimes reeling in surprise at discoveries found in well-known favorites. Starr breaks down often-overlooked aspects of the works, from Dylan’s many vocal styles to his evocative harmonica playing to his choices as a composer. The result is a guide that allows listeners to follow their own passionate love of music into hearing these songs—and personal favorites—in new ways.

Reader-friendly and revealing, Listening to Bob Dylan encourages hardcore fans and Dylan-curious seekers alike to rediscover the music legend.

Larry Starr is emeritus professor of music history at the University of Washington. He is the author of George Gershwin and coauthor of American Popular Music: From Minstrelsy to MP3, sixth edition.

Glyph: Graphic Poetry = Trans. Sensory by Naoko Fujimoto

Naoko Fujimoto translates her poems (that are written in English on flat paper) into words and images to create a contemporary picture scroll.

The picture scroll in Japanese is Emaki (eh-MA-kee) and the style has been popular since the 7-16th centuries in Japan. It is still a widely recognized art style in Japan and the rest of the world. Emaki is akin to a current graphic novel / poetry / comic. One of the most famous Emaki is the Tale of Genji, which is a fictional (perhaps gossip) story about a handsome son of the emperor.

The graphic poetry project is also meant for the viewer to transport their senses from the flat paper and bridge the gap between words and images that will connect with their physical counterparts. Like a historical Emaki, there are side stories hidden behind some of the main graphic narratives— be they comedic or serious— for audiences to interpret. All of the details (choice of words, origami paper, or styles) have a specific meaning to contribute to the whole.

In June, 2016, Naoko Fujimoto decided to take a year off to be a full-time poet and artist. People around her asked why she was leaving a stable job, and if she was going to be a starving artist. She wanted to find out how far she can succeed as a poet and artist. After all, if she gets lost, she can just come back to what worked before.

During the year, she had opportunities to not only read books, but also explore and live with classic and contemporary works, such as the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Tokugawa Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. There, she revisited her idea of how she could create an effective melding of poetry and art; perhaps, words and images.

The following, entitled “The Duck’s Smile”, was her first attempt. She wrote an original poem for a project named, “Killing Sally McHill”, which was a protest against common violence hidden around the house, school, office, and society. “The Duck’s Smile” was specifically written about a hierarchy in a small community between the narrator and Sally. Her first graphic poem adapted a written poem into a graphic narrative. The poem started from the top left corner and progressed to the bottom right. It took a simple black and white art approach, but did not quite embody how she wanted it to be represented.

Naoko Fujimoto researched art works of inclusions of “word” and “image” such as László Moholy-Nagy, Hiroshige Utagawa, William Blake, Francisco Goya, and many other writers and artists. Then when she observed works by a German painter and sculptor, Anselm Kiefer, she understood that poetry must have explosions of creativity. Coincidentally, she had the chance to attend a workshop with Robin Coste Lewis, who critiqued the poems to be tight in structure, but reminded to forget about grammar and rules from time to time to experiment freely.

So she chose to adapt a traditional Japanese Emaki style (an illustrated narrative art). The original poem was carefully scattered specific phrases or implied images were selected, with the rest being ignored (like the poetry erasure technique). She traveled to find paper and objects, such as supermarket advertisements, birthday gift wrapping, postcards, origami, magazines, and other materials rich in color and texture. She wrote about relatable life conflicts, so using common objects in turn grounded her graphic poetry.

Naoko Fujimoto was born and raised in Nagoya, Japan. She studied at Nanzan Junior College and received BA and Master’s degrees from Indiana University. Recent work appears or is forthcoming in POETRY, Kenyon Review, Seattle Review, Quarterly West, North American Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Prairie Schooner, Crazyhorse, and The Arkansas International. She is the author of Glyph:Graphic Poetry=Trans. Sensory (Tupelo Press, 2021), Where I Was Born (Willow Publishing, 2019), and three chapbooks. She is an associate & outreach translation editor at RHINO Poetry. (naokofujimoto.com)

PARK (platform for visual arts) publiceert overzicht tentoonstellingsprojecten 2018 – 2020

PARK is een kunstinitiatief opgericht in 2013 door Rob Moonen in samenwerking met een zestal andere Tilburgse kunstenaars. Op dit moment bestaat de PARK werkgroep uit Linda Arts, René Korten, Rob Moonen en Liza Voetman.

PARK ziet de noodzaak van een middenpodium dat zich positioneert tussen Kunstpodium T en Museum De Pont en zet zich daarvoor in door een tentoonstellingsprogramma in de voormalige Goretti-kapel aan het Wilhelminapark te Tilburg te realiseren.

PARK richt zich op actuele ontwikkelingen binnen de hedendaagse kunst én op kunstenaars met gedegen ervaring en bewezen kwaliteit. Er wordt plek geboden aan regionale collega’s maar ook aan landelijk of internationaal opererende kunstenaars, juist om een positieve bijdrage aan de discussie over actuele kunst tot stand te brengen.

De werkgroep ambieert het podium van belang te laten zijn op landelijk niveau, maar bij elk project wordt met nadruk gezocht naar een inhoudelijke koppeling met de stad. De werkgroep is er van overtuigd dat samenwerking met andere partijen de zichtbaarheid en functionaliteit van de plek zal versterken, maar ook dat de plek een waardevolle stimulans voor de beeldende kunst in de stad en de regio zal kunnen zijn.

PARK wil een bijdrage leveren aan de ontwikkeling van een gunstig productie- en vestigingsklimaat voor beeldend kunstenaars uit de regio door deze in contact te brengen met een nationaal en internationaal netwerk.

Per jaar worden er vier a vijf projecten en een zomerresidentie gerealiseerd met waar mogelijk een bijpassend raamprogramma in de vorm van lezingen, kunstenaarsgesprekken, muziek en film.

Death Tourism. Disaster Sites as Recreational Landscape Edited by Brigitte Sion

Auschwitz. Hiroshima. Cambodia’s killing fields. The World Trade Center. The mass graves of Rwanda.

These places of violent death have become part of the recreational landscape of tourism, an industry that is otherwise dedicated to pleasure and escape. In dark places like concentration camps, prisons, battlegrounds, and the sites of natural disasters, how are memory and trauma mediated by thanotourism, or tourism of death?

In Death Tourism, Brigitte Sion brings together essays by some of the most trenchant voices in the field to look at the tensions created by the juxtaposition of human remains and food stands, political agendas and educational programs, economic development and architectural ambition.

How does a state redefine its national identity after catastrophic trauma?

And what is the role of this kind of tourism in defining their new identity?

A timely volume on an irresistible subject, this inquiry exposes the intersection of leisure with the inhumane, giving insight into how people respectfully share a public space that is both free and sacred, compelling and tragic.

The T. S. Eliot Prize is run by the T. S. Eliot Foundation. The T. S. Eliot Prize is the most valuable prize in British poetry – the winning poet will receive a cheque for £25,000 and the shortlisted poets will be presented with cheques for £1,500. It is the only major poetry prize which is judged purely by established poets. The 2021 judging panel are looking for the best new poetry collection written in English and published in 2021 in the UK or Ireland.

Chair Glyn Maxwell said:
‘Judging the T. S. Eliot Prize 2021, I am lucky enough to be joined by two of my favourite younger poets, Caroline Bird and Zaffar Kunial. We are delighted with our shortlist, while lamenting all the fine work we had to set aside. Poetry styles are as disparate as I’ve ever known them, and the wider world as threatened and bewildered as any of us can remember. Out of this we have chosen ten books that sound clear and compelling voices – of the moment, yet also below and beyond it. Older and younger, wiser and wilder, well-known and lesser-known, these are the ten voices we think should enter the stage and be heard in the spotlight, changing the story while there’s a story to be changed.’

The T. S. Eliot Prize Shortlist Readings will take place on Sunday 9th January 2022 in the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall in London as part of its literature programme. The shortlist readings are the largest annual poetry event in the UK and will be hosted once again by Ian McMillan.

Tickets for the Readings in the Royal Festival and the simultaneously streamed event are now on sale from the box office: 0203 879 9555 (Open from 10am – 2pm Monday to Friday). Website: www.southbankcentre.co.uk

The winner of the 2021 Prize will be announced at the Award Ceremony on Monday 10th January 2022, where the winner and the shortlisted poets will be presented with their cheques.

Last year’s winner was Bhanu Kapil’s How to Wash a Heart and the judges were Lavinia Greenlaw (chair), Mona Arshi and Andrew McMillan.

The T. S. Eliot Prize, which former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion has described as “the Prize most poets want to win”, is an annual prize for the best new poetry collection published in the UK or Ireland.

There She Was: The Secret History of Miss America by Amy Argetsinger

A Washington Post Style editor’s fascinating and irresistible look back on the Miss America pageant as it approaches its 100th anniversary.

The sash. The tears. The glittering crown. And of course, that soaring song. For all of its pomp and kitsch, the Miss America pageant is indelibly written into the American story of the past century.

From its giddy origins as a summer’s-end tourist draw in Prohibition-era Atlantic City, it blossomed into a televised extravaganza that drew tens of millions of viewers in its heyday and was once considered the highest honor that a young woman could achieve.

For two years, Washington Post reporter and editor Amy Argetsinger visited pageants and interviewed former winners and contestants to unveil the hidden world of this iconic institution.

There She Was spotlights how the pageant survived decades of social and cultural change, collided with a women’s liberation movement that sought to abolish it, and redefined itself alongside evolving ideas about feminism.

For its superstars—Phyllis George, Vanessa Williams, Gretchen Carlson—and for those who never became household names, Miss America was a platform for women to exercise their ambitions and learn brutal lessons about the culture of fame. Spirited and revelatory, There She Was charts the evolution of the American woman, from the Miss America catapulted into advocacy after she was exposed as a survivor of domestic violence to the one who used her crown to launch a congressional campaign; from a 1930s winner who ran away on the night of her crowning to a present-day rock guitarist carving out her place in this world. Argetsinger dissects the scandals and financial turmoil that have repeatedly threatened to kill the pageant—and highlights the unexpected sisterhood of Miss Americas fighting to keep it alive.

Amy Argetsinger is an editor and writer for The Washington Post. “There She Was” is her first book.

100% FEMALE EXPO

100% MALE NUDE

‘Metropolitan Museum Tilburg’
Stedekestraat 15 – 5041DM Tilburg
vrijdag 17 september t/m zondag 14 november 2021

Een groep vrouwelijke kunstenaars onder de naam ‘Guerrilla Girls’ voert al decennia actie tegen de ondervertegenwoordiging van vrouwen in de grote musea van de Verenigde Staten, ook in onze dependance in New York, het ‘Metropolitan Museum of Art’. Hun telling: minder dan 5% exposerende vrouwen, terwijl het tentoongestelde naakt voor 85% vrouwelijk was.

Oef! Dit gaf te denken. Daar moest wat aan te doen zijn. Waarom niet omkeren? Vandaar deze expositie van alléén vrouwen met alléén mannelijk naakt. Ook dat mag gezien worden.

Hierbij een uitnodiging voor onze tentoonstelling ‘100% female expo – 100% male nude’ in de ramen van het ‘Metropolitan Museum – Tilburg’ van 17 september t/m 14 november 2021.

Ulrike Doszmann, Neeltje Drijfhout, HoiShan Mak, Kim Pattiruhu, Marianne Peijnenburg, Ellen Rijk, Jonaske de Ruiter, Milian van Stokkum, Ans Verdijk en Hanneke Wetzer laten hun licht schijnen op het verschijnsel man in al zijn glorie. Nu in Tilburg. U bent van harte welkom!

Het ‘Metropolitan Museum | Tilburg’, de raamtentoonstellingen aan de Stedekestraat 15 te Tilburg, is dagelijks dag en nacht geopend en de toegang is vrij.

38ste Nacht van de Poëzie TivoliVredenburg – Utrecht op 2 oktober 2021

De Nacht van de Poëzie is al veertig jaar een begrip. Het grootste poëziefestival van het jaar vond voor het eerst in 1980 plaats, in wat toen nog Muziekcentrum Vredenburg heette.

 

De Nacht trok door de jaren heen bomvolle zalen met legendarische optredens tot diep in de nacht van grote namen als Annie M.G. Schmidt, Lucebert, Hugo Claus, Rutger Kopland en Judith Herzberg, en vele jonge dichters die later legendarisch werden.

De Nacht is terug! Vorig jaar moesten we helaas overslaan vanwege de onoverzichtelijke corona-ontwikkelingen, maar dit jaar zal alsnog de 38ste editie van de illustere Nacht plaatsvinden. Voorlopig nog steeds in een aangepaste vorm, want groen licht om op 2 oktober alweer in een bomvolle zaal te zitten is er op dit moment nog niet.

Tijdens deze ‘limited edition’ in de Grote Zaal van TivoliVredenburg presenteren Piet Piryns en Ester Naomi Perquin als vanouds optredens van de beste dichters van dit moment, afgewisseld met muzikale entr’actes. Het motto van dit jaar is geleverd door Vrouwkje Tuinman: ’s Nachts woon ik zelden waar mijn bed staat. In die regel klinkt zowel een zoete herinnering aan een onbezorgd verleden door, als een hoopvolle wens voor een toekomst zonder afstand, mondkapjes en avondklok; de afsluiting van een periode waarin we veel te vaak waren overgeleverd aan ons eigen bed.

Hoe de omstandigheden op 2 oktober ook zullen zijn: deze Nacht gaat door! Er zullen optredens zijn van Dichter des Vaderlands Lieke Marsman, Vrouwkje Tuinman, K. Michel, Lisette Ma Neza, Edward van de Vendel, Maria Barnas, Maartje Smits, Vrouwkje Tuinman, Erwin Mortier, Rosa Schogt, Bart Moeyaert, Meity Völke, Arjen Duinker, Wout Waanders, Paul Demets, Liesbeth Lagemaat, Mattijs Deraedt, Maarten van der Graaff en Joost Prinsen.

Dit jaar worden de muzikale entr’actes verzorgd door Claudia de Breij, Maarten Engeltjes en zijn barokorkest PRJCT Amsterdam en de Marokkaanse muzieksensatie Aicha Tachinouite. een solo optreden van Jett Rebel, Thijs Boontjes Dans- en Showorkest, en de Belgische ontdekking Naima Joris.

NOG 3 WEKEN TE ZIEN: LUSTWARANDE STATIONS

 

De elfde editie van Lustwarande, STATIONS, die terugblikt op twintig jaar expositiepraktijk in De Oude Warande, is nog drie weken te zien (tot 3 oktober 2021).

Museumtijdschrift afgelopen week over STATIONS:
“De installatie (van Navid Nuur (red.)) laat dan ook de kracht zien van Lustwarande, die dit jaar geen overkoepelend thema kent: door gebruik te maken van de natuurlijke omgeving komt het werk van iedere kunstenaar telkens even verrassend, maar treffend tot zijn recht.”

LUSTWARANDE 2021 – STATIONS
STATIONS verwijst naar het moment dat de kunstenaars deelnamen aan Lustwarande in het begin van hun loopbaan, of juist later, op diverse tijdstippen in een spanne van twintig jaar, soms herhaaldelijk – en de huidige fase in hun carrière, nu ze allen midcareer en established zijn. Tegelijk verwijst de titel naar de voor de locatie zo essentiële seizoenswisselingen en naar de staties van het leven, naar het verstrijken van de tijd, naar transformatie en vergankelijkheid, en naar het voor Lustwarande en aanverwante buitenexposities zo belangrijke aspect wandelen. Waar je als wandelaar bij de afzonderlijke beelden, staties op zich, halt houdt, ontvouwen zich nieuwe verhalen, die voelbaar maar niet direct aanwijsbaar onderling verbonden zijn.

STATIONS – 11 e EDITIE LUSTWARANDE
3 juli – 3 oktober 2021
Park De Oude Warande, Tilburg

Good art revolutionizes your whole being. It is something that stops you, or slows you down – Ugo Rondinone

Dit jaar blikt Lustwarande met trots terug op twintig jaar expositiepraktijk in De Oude Warande. Voor STATIONS zijn daarom alleen kunstenaars uitgenodigd die, veelal als jonge talenten, eerder aan Lustwarande hebben deelgenomen. De geselecteerde kunstenaars, twaalf uit een lijst van honderdvijfenzeventig, hebben sinds hun eerdere deelname oeuvres ontwikkeld die inmiddels bepalend zijn voor de internationale sculpturale canon en zijn daarom van groot belang om getoond te worden.

Deelnemende kunstenaars: Monica Bonvicini (IT) – Tom Claassen (NL) – Michel François & Douglas Eynon (BE/GB) – Gereon Krebber (DE) – Mark Manders (NL) – Navid Nuur (IR/NL) – Thomas Rentmeister (DE) – Ugo Rondinone (CH) – Maria Roosen (NL) – Marien Schouten (NL) – Erwin Wurm (AU)

Curator: Chris Driessen, artistiek directeur Lustwarande

Bezoekadres: Lustwarande – Platform for Contemporary Sculpture, park De Oude

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison: Poetry, Journals, Transcripts, and Lyrics

The definitive anthology of Jim Morrison‘s writings with rare photographs and numerous handwritten excerpts of unpublished and published poetry and lyrics from his 28 privately held notebooks.

You can also hear Jim Morrison’s final poetry recording, now available for the first time, on the CD or digital audio edition of this book, at the Village Recorder in West Los Angeles on his twenty-seventh birthday, December 8, 1970.

The audio book also includes performances by Patti Smith, Oliver Ray, Liz Phair, Tom Robbins, and others reading Morrison’s work.

Created in collaboration with Jim Morrison’s estate and inspired by a posthumously discovered list entitled “Plan for Book,”

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison is an almost 600-page anthology of the writings of the late poet and iconic Doors’ front man. This landmark publication is the definitive opus of Morrison’s creative output—and the book he intended to publish. Throughout, a compelling mix of 160 visual components accompanies the text, which includes numerous excerpts from his 28 privately held notebooks—all written in his own hand and published here for the first time—as well as an array of personal images and commentary on the work by Morrison himself.

This oversized, beautifully produced collectible volume contains a wealth of new material—poetry, writings, lyrics, and audio transcripts of Morrison reading his work.

Not only the most comprehensive book of Morrison’s work ever published, it is immersive, giving readers insight to the creative process of and offering access to the musings and observations of an artist whom the poet Michael McClure called “one of the finest, clearest spirits of our times.”

This remarkable collector’s item includes:
• Foreword by Tom Robbins; introduction and notes by editor Frank Lisciandro that provide insight to the work; prologue by Anne Morrison Chewning
• Published and unpublished work and a vast selection of notebook writings
• The transcript, the only photographs in existence, and production notes of Morrison’s last poetry recording on his twenty-seventh birthday
• The Paris notebook, possibly Morrison’s final journal, reproduced at full reading size
• Excerpts from notebooks kept during his 1970 Miami trial
• The shooting script and gorgeous color stills from the never-released film HWY
• Complete published a I Look Back”: a compelling autobiography in poem form
• Family photographs as well as images of Morrison during his years as a performer

 

James Douglas Morrison

(1943-1971) was a poet, filmmaker, screenwriter, and the lead singer of as well as the lyricist and a composer for The Doors. Prior to his death, Morrison self-published three limited-edition volumes of his poetry: The Lords/Notes on Vision (1969), The New Creatures (1969), and An American Prayer (1970). Simon & Schuster published the combined The Lords and the New Creatures in 1970. Posthumous editions of Morrison’s writings include Wilderness: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison, Volume I (1988) and The American Night: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison, Volume II (1990).

Support PEN Belarus

This week, the Ministry of Justice in Belarus sent a letter indicating they are seeking to liquidate our sister organization PEN Belarus, which for years has supported writers and free expression in the country. It comes as the country’s authoritarian leader Aleksandr Lukashenka continues to crack down on all those who dissent. Show our colleagues and friends at PEN Belarus that they are not alone—and that we rally to support the freedom to write wherever and whenever it comes under threat.
