It includes contributions by Alberto Pérez-Gómez, Beatrice Galilee, Isolde Brielmaier, LionHeart, Susan Magsamen, and Michael Spicher.
For the event, Reddy will engage in conversation with curator and critic Beatrice Galilee, with introductory remarks by Kevin Erickson. A new artistic video collaboration with poet, artist, and writer LionHeart will also debut at the event, as an extension of his series of spatial poems written in response to the work of Suchi Reddy.
