Please join us on the evening of Friday October 21 and Saturday October 22 for several programs produced by DEPS in conjunction with Columbia Weekend:
Events on Friday, October 21st:
4-6pm, Textposition: Exhibition Reception
C33 Gallery, 33 E Congress Pkwy
Textposition is an exhibition of new works by Jason Eckenroth and Woody Leslie that showcase the spacial act of writing. Jason Eckenroth and Woody Leslie are both writers who write not just texts, but text in space. The physicalization of their words, through projection on the wall and typesetting on the page respectively, are essential parts of their writing practices. The text’s position becomes a significant grammatical macrostructure, near as important as the words themselves.
4-9pm, ShopColumbia WAC Pop Up Market
