Conversation Project: What We Risk

Creativity, Vulnerability, and Art

February 12, 2020 | 7:00 p.m. | Salem Art Association

600 Mission St SE, Salem OR 97302

What do we risk when we lay ourselves open through music, painting, or any other art form? What might we give up and what might we gain when we set out to craft something beautiful or provocative or simply expressive that the world did not previously hold? Given today's artistic economy, to what extent is exposure—to other people and of the creative self—desirable? Join artist and educator Jason Graham, a slam poetry champion and speaker who performs hip hop as MOsley WOtta, for a conversation exploring the relationship between self-expression and vulnerability. This event will take place in the annex.
