Presented by Words Matter
The Words Matter art show is bringing local writers, artists and performers together. Six groups of Mid-South creatives have been putting together multimedia works that will be presented on Thursday, November 12th at Crosstown Arts.
This is an event where process and product will be on display. Each of the six projects began with words – a literary contribution from a writer. From there, a combination of artists and performers extended that creation in their own media – visual artists, musicians, dancers, actors and filmmakers found collective expression and inspiration from the language.
Memphis has been making some bold and exciting collaborations across artistic disciplines and we want to be a leader to encourage that. Other than the project starting with the written word, there were no rules. The artists were free to do their art.
This event benefits Literacy Mid-South.
