Crossroads: an Evening of Seattle History
VENUE CHANGE. Event will take place at Northwest Film Forum, June 16th, 7:00 pm
Below is a review written in 1989 of "Civilization" (Meg McHutchison, ReFlex ), an ambitious multi-discipline art project addressing the then changing face of Seattle. A project and article that could have easily been created to address our current wave of gentrification. We will be screening a rare showing of Seeing and Remembering, documenting a performance from that project featuring visual artist Chuck Iffland and poet Jesse Bernstein. And as a bonus we will show another Jesse Bernstein performance made the same year where he reads to the public from inside the display windows of the Bon Marche (Macy's). Thanks to Chuck Iffland, Larry Reid, Debra Bouchegnies, and Kurt Geissel for helping me track down these videos.
