She would practice public speaking in the woods

A performance by Jennifer Schmidt

February 15, 5-7pm 

February 22, 5-7pm

“She would practice public speaking in the woods” is a reading, writing, speaking and recording project that draws inspiration from the assertions of the activist: Lucy Stone, and the writings of the author Virginia Woolf to create an audible space for reflecting that is at once public and private. Referencing the history of speaker bureaus and public speaking engagements, Jennifer will read her notes and writings as a performance that visitors to the gallery can experience as “a talk” without a set beginning or end. 

Visitors to the gallery will not be expected to stay for the duration, and are encouraged to wander in and out of the space.
