Ariana Reines Reading at Type Books is presented by Gallery TPW, as part of the CANADIAN ECSTASY program.
Gallery TPW is thrilled to host a week of events with poet, playwright, translator, and artist Ariana Reines. In the context of the TPW R&D project, we invite audiences to engage the charismatic and bold practice of this interdisciplinary thinker. Through a week of performance, reading, writing and talking together well consider practice, methodology and what it might mean to be in relation.
Based in New York, Ariana Reines is the author of The Cow Alberta Prize, 2006, Coeur de Lion 2007, Mercury 2011, all from FenceBooks, and Thursday, 2012, from Spork, and the Obie-winning play TELEPHONE 2009, commissioned & produced by The Foundry Theatre. She is the translator of The Little Black Book of Grislidis Real: Days and Nights of an Anarchist Whore by Jean-Luc Hennig 2009 and Preliminary Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl by TIQQUN 2011, from Semiotexte, and of My Heart Laid Bare by Charles Baudelaire, 2009 from Mal-O-Mar. Performances and theatrical works include THE ORIGIN OF THE WORLD at Stuart Shave Modern Art 2013, LORNA, with Jim Fletcher, at the Martin E. Segal Theatre 2013, MISS ST'S HIEROGLYPHIC SUFFERING at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum 2009, and SWISSNESS at The Swiss Institute 2012. Most recently she published The Origin of the World, a book for Semiotexte's contribution to the 2014 Whitney Biennial. This summer she will present MORTAL KOMBAT, a new performance work with Jim Fletcher, at Le Mouvement Biel/Bienne in Switzerland.
