Talks on January 18, February 9, February 22, March 8, and March 22, promptly at 7:30 pm
Over the next three months, Angie Keefer will give five different talks. The talks are brainy, but Keefer is not an intellectual doily maker. She is a woman without a program. She writes, edits, and publishes, but through it all hangs onto the particulate phenomena of lived life, and the more evenings you attend, the more inclined you may be to see and hear again with demurral, as mystery isn’t something that evaporates as knowledge increases. It grows along with explanations. Why doodle on the walls of the cave, why send mysterious messages, when one can speak directly? She asks the question not for wooden answers, but as a kind of implacable demonstration.

Angie Keefer (b. 1977) graduated from Yale University in 1999. Her work has taken place at the 2012 São Paulo Biennial; MoMA, NY; Artist Space, NY; and the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, among others. In 2011, she co-founded, with David Reinfurt and Stuart Bailey, THE SERVING LIBRARY. The Serving Library is a long-term project founded on a consideration of how the role of the library has changed over time, from fixed archive through circulating collection to a disseminating pimple on the internet. Of course, that description is not quite right, but expression is always a compromise.
