Exhibit: Saved from Drowning by Dan Hurlin

Heimbold Visual Arts Center Heimbold Gallery

Not open to the public

“In Donald Barthelme’s seminal 1968 Robert Kennedy Saved from Drowning, a narrator suddenly appears out of nowhere in the very last section of the short story and throws a rope out to the main character ‘K,’ who is close to being pulled under in a turbulent sea. With one end of the rope around his waist, the narrator braces himself against a rock and pulls ‘K’ out of the water, saving him from drowning.

“Like the narrator, I have spent my career as an artist dragging narratives to the shore, rescuing them from oblivion – saving them from being drowned in an ocean of both cultural and personal amnesia.” —Dan Hurlin

Rachel Eliza Griffiths – A Frame of Forms: Poems, Pictures, Prose

Virtual Online

Open to the public

/ Wednesday

6:00pm-7:00pm

At present, this talk will explore how risks can happen across genres and how such risks ––in one’s creative process and one’s identity––can serve as catalysts for thinking intimately about how voice and narrative engage us. Whether by stanza, sentence, or shutter speed, I’m interested in what is at stake for both author and audience when we are met by interdisciplinary experimentation. I’d like us to think about the relationship between text and images in this contemporary world and how this relationship has functioned historically in our own creative practices. I’ll try to encourage us all to think about how we see, and are seen, and how cultivating mindful attention to one’s inner life, and the politics of visibility beyond our own bodies, is a power that we deserve. There is also ever the notion of wonder, as a frame and form and voice, and how it confronts us in grief, joy, desire, and imagination. Perhaps wonder itself is what leads us to the edge of our pages and lives. Perhaps then we leap. Why do we leap and how can we craft our flight across genres?
