Ruffneck Constructivists: Class visit to Kara Walker's ICA show

photos by Brooke Sietinsons

"Ruffneck Constructivists" -- a group show curated by Kara Walker -- opened at the ICA last week. Walker will be giving a talk / slide show at Penn's Humanities Forum on Friday; I will be joining her for that.  

This past Monday, English 111 -- my Experimental Writing seminar (offered through Penn's Creative Writing Program) -- visited the ICA and the students performed their poems, written in response to the show, as well as to the 5oth anniversary ICA show on the second floor. Brooke Sietinsons was there taking pictures. The full set of photograph is on Flicker. Pictured: Liza Davis, Sarah Greene, Lexi Malakhoff, Jess Bergman, Shawn Teo, Christina Hesketh, Connie Yu, Gabe Morales, Ryan Zahalka, Kristen Kelly, Charles Bernstein, and ICA Director Amy Sadao
