Vis-a-Vis Society: Sierra Nelson & Rachel Kessler
2007 Jack Straw Writers Program

Genre: Poetry/Collaborative Work

Dedicated to presenting poetic analyses of the everyday, the Vis-a-Vis Society is an outgrowth of the literary performance group the Typing Explosion and is the current home for artists Sierra Nelson and Rachel Kessler. Using collaboratively written texts as their base, these poetry-scientists have presented their research in multi-media shows at such venues as Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival and Henry Art Gallery, the Wave Books National Poetry Bus Tour, and New York's Galapagos Art Space.

Listen to the Vis-A-Vis Society's interview with 2007 curator Matt Briggs and highlights from their live reading in the Jack Straw May Reading Series.
