Theorem: Elizabeth Bradfield & Antonia Contro


Join us for a reading and discussion between poet Elizabeth Bradfield and artist Antonia Contro, moderated by Angel Ysaguirre. Bradfield and Contro discuss their collaborative work, Theorem, and display images from their unique visual, tactile, and poetic work. Bradfield, whose work has appeared in the New Yorker and elsewhere, is the author of four books, most recently Toward Antarctica. Contro is a multidisciplinary artist whose site-specific installations include Tempus Fugit at the American Philosophical Society. Ysaguirre is the Court Theatre executive director at the University of Chicago. He has served as the executive director of Illinois Humanities, which rekindled the Gwendolyn Brooks Youth Poetry Awards, and is a current Poetry Foundation trustee.
