Low Residency Creative Writing hosts Cover to Cover Event for Literary Arts Portland Book Festival.

September 20, 2022

PNCA's Low Residency Creative Writing program is very honored to host a Cover to Cover Event for Literary Arts Portland Book Festival, which is being held on November 5th. Students from Low Residency Creative Writing will collaborate with students from four other programs in the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies. The event is called (re)moved. 

(re)moved is an exhibition uncovering new meanings from the erasure of words.The project will include a collective of artists from PNCA’s Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies who will consciously transform a pre-existing text to a new text. Each word of the pre-existing text will be printed individually and hung in the order as it was written. From there, each artist (in a sequential order) will then have the opportunity to remove the words of their choosing. The removal performance will be recorded and shown side by side with the disassembled text. 

The events for Cover to Cover are: An exhibition in PNCA’s Gallery 157 that runs from October 31 to November 18, 2022; and an opening reception on Thursday, November 3rd at 6:30 pm, in concert with the Portland Book Festival and Pearl District’s First Thursday.
