      Toronto - Appropriation and Dedication #10

      Anne Carson
      Cob Fire Pit, Dufferin Grove Park
    2. Following the May session of the reading group which was developed in conjunction with Annie MacDonell's Pictures Become Objects, Objects Become Events residency at the Toronto Reference Library, the next session of the If I Can't Dance Appropriation/Dedicaiton reading group takes on Monday, August 11 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Cob Fire Pit in the south end of Dufferin Grove Park, adjacent to the Gladstone Avenue entrance.

      Like the December gathering held at the Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, the upcoming session is a collaboration with cheyanne turions's project No Reading After the Internet and Gabby Moser's project No Looking After the Internet.

      Excerpts from Anne Carson's essay Variations on the Right to Remain Silent will be read aloud and used as a provocation to perform an act of translation as a group.

      Continuing our discussions about appropriation as the displacement and development of individual voices, we will consider translation as another possible strategy in a process of effacing and producing subjectivities.

      If I Can't Dance,
      I Don't Want to Be Part of
      Your Revolution
