The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum welcomes back visual artist Cyriaco Lopes and poet Terri Witek for The Keepers – Participatory Virtual Event on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at 5:30pm.
This free event is a collaboration with the St. Johns County Public Library, in conjunction with National Poetry Month. Registration is required in order to participate. Click event website link.
Through The Keepers, Lopes and Witek will utilize Zoom as an investigation of the gap between images and text, as orchestra, as conversation, as interactive performative work. The work of Cyriaco Lopes Terri Witek combines images and texts in a lyrical meditation on the passage of time and on the imperfect language of what remains and is transformed.
Viewers are encouraged to participate in the creation of both visual and auditory elements in order to generate a unique art experience on this newly popular platform.
We would appreciate the audience’s participation during this event. Therefore, we will request all participants to turn on their cameras (aka share video) and unmute themselves during certain segments of the performance.
While full participation is strongly encouraged, we understand that not everyone might feel comfortable showing their faces and lending us their voices. There will be ample opportunity to participate in the event through the chat function.
