The Forêt Intérieure/Interior Forest project has closed at 18th Street Art Center and is on the move to Paris at Mains d’Oeuvres in Saint-Ouen, with public participation beginning on August 19 until September 12, opening on September 13, and the exhibition running from September 14 to October 27, 2013.

The Cixous reading group has a new website:

Our next book is Clarice Lispector’s The Passion According to G.H.  We will discuss the New Directions Edition translated by Idra Novey. There has been some confusion over which edition we’ll be using, so please join the conversation regardless of the version you have read.

We’ll meet from 4pm-6pm on Sunday, July 21.  (We’ll meet once a month for the rest of the summer).  For those who wish to stay, we’ll follow up the reading group with a screening of Peter Ibbetson starring one of Cixous’ favorite transferential objects: Gary Cooper.

Please R.S.V.P. to Robert Nashak for details about the meeting location.
