Open Studio Exhibition – 5:00-5:45 PM,  Kaplan Artist in Residence Studio, Kresge 1-410 (1880 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL 60208).

Join us for a multi-media  overview of Rotelli’s work: including highlights from his  “Videolanguage” series; “Diary,” a pictorial diary dedicated to the light off Lake Michigan; and “Enigma,” the blueprints for Rotelli’s upcoming light installation on Chicago’s Field Museum.

Light Installation, Reading and “The Poetry Way” – 6:00-7:00 PM Charles Deering Library (1935 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208)

The façade of the historic Deering Library will be transformed into a page of luminous poetry, projecting the work of seven Chicago poets; inside the library, the featured poets will read their work, accompanied by a musical score; students and other guests are also invited to contribute to “The Poetry Way,” by inscribing poems, in any language, on a long scroll that will be rolled out at the event.

Participating Chicago Poets: Ana Castillo, Reginald Gibbons, Arica Hilton, Parneshia Jones, Elise Paschen, Ed Roberson, Jennifer Scapettone, and Rachel Webster; curated by Arica Hilton.

Light installation by Marco Nereo Rotelli; Curated by Thomas Haskell Simpson; Musical and vocal actions curated by Alessandra Visconti

All events are free and open to the public—events take place on the Evanston Campus of Northwestern University.

The Kaplan Institute’s Artist in Residence Program brings innovative artists working in diverse media to campus for quarter-long residencies to facilitate the production of new work, give the Northwestern community insight into the process of production, and recognize the importance of the fine arts to the humanities.

Marco Nereo Rotelli’s residence is co-sponsored by the Global Languages Initiative, Residential Colleges, and the Northwestern Library.
