John Pluecker, The Unsettlements: Dad

Saturday, Jul. 13, 2019 – Saturday, Jul. 13, 2019

07:30 PM – 08:30 PM


Book Release, Performance & Conversation with Laura August

Come to Lawndale for the release of the The Unsettlements: Dad, a book object hand-lettered in pencil that is a translation of the work journal JP kept over the past year: a scrapbook of thinking, notes from studio visits, Youtube videos, fragments of conversations with their dad, Instagram posts, tweets, book covers, organic material IDs, and more. The book builds a larger universe of fragments that exist in parallel to the object poems and videos in the citysinging exhibition space. The book is an invitation to an intimate encounter with the narratives behind the work in the gallery. Following the performance, JP will be in conversation with citysinging’s curator Laura August. The book will be released the same evening and available for purchase.

John Pluecker’s work has received additional funding from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
