ALIGNMENT

Alignment is a reading series seeking to create relations, clashes, or comaraderies that would not otherwise have occasion. Two readers at different points.

Maya Martinez + Elaine Kahn

January 25th, 2018

Maya Martinez is a writer, artist, and dancer. Her writing and object making deal with personal mythology, cruelty, traps, and entertainment. Maya is from Florida and dances on the weekend <3;)

Elaine Kahn is an artist currently based in Los Angeles. She is co-founder of the P.Splash Collective and author of Women in Public (City Lights Books, 2015). Writing has been published in Art Papers, Open Space, Brooklyn Rail, The Poetry Foundation, Jubilat, San Francisco Arts Quarterly, West Branch, and elsewhere. A new chapbook I Told You I Was Sick: A Romance was just released by After Hours, Ltd.




When two emerge at opposite ends of the forest at the same time they are in alignment. They are not the same, they are aligned. They are at the opposite ends of a line. The line is time or the line is geography or the line is a body or the line is a finger. Alignment is a reading series seeking to create relations, clashes, or comaraderies that would not otherwise have occasion. Two readers at different points. The difference is age is medium is location is race is gender is sexuality or the difference is a secret. Readers could be strangers, idols, or opponents. The difference creates a question. The difference creates a mistake. The difference creates alignment.

An opportunity to create something new, challenge their idea of medium, or unearth a piece from their own archive, Alignment welcomes experimentation by providing 30-45 minutes to each reader.
