Please click HERE to register for this virtual event.

Please join us for our monthly literary showcase, presented virtually via Zoom for July 2021. 21c Louisville is proud to partner with Spalding’s School of Writing and The Louisville Review to present Voice and Vision. This seasonal forum, held on the third Thursday of each month, May-August, provides an opportunity for writers to share samples of their work with each other and the public. Each month will feature a variety of readings by poets and writers with ties to Kentucky, along with a look at highlights from the current contemporary art exhibitions at 21c Louisville.

The July program will feature four authors with recently published books and a new up-and-coming writer, including: Makalani Bandele, Lynnell Edwards, Nancy Jensen, John Morgan, and Eleanor Morse. Co-hosted by Sena Jeter Naslund and Amy Foos Kapoor.

Art is indeed everywhere at 21c Louisville and we’ll begin this month’s program with a virtual tour, led by Karen Gillenwater, Museum Manager at 21c Louisville, of some of the specially commissioned permanent artworks that can be found throughout 21c Museum Hotel Louisville. In Voice & Vision style, the tour will start with poetry, as seen in the interactive video projection installation Text Rain by Camille Utterback & Romy Achituv that offers guests the opportunity to do what seems magical—lift and play with falling letters that do not really exist. We’ll then share the story behind In the Absence of Voyerurism #6 and #7, site-specific video installations by Sean Bidic that are integrated into the restroom mirrors. On an imaginary trip in the 21c elevators, we will gaze up into a seemingly infinite space, a feeling created by Ivan Navarro’s Untitled, light box installations from his Holeway series. In the Atrium level, we will see Ned Kahn’s Cloud Rings, Virgil Marti’s Landscape Wallpaper, and Asleep in the Cyclone, a sculptural installation by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe that is also a functional hotel room.
