Lizzie Hughes, The Making of Americans
Saturday 23 August 2014
3–6pm

“And I went on and on and then one day after I had written a thousand pages, this was in 1908 I just did not go on any more.”
    — Gertrude Stein, The Gradual Making Of The Making of Americans

On 23 August, Gertrude Stein’s nine hundred and twenty six page novel The Making of Americans will be read out loud in its entirety throughout Matt’s Gallery. Rather than a continuous reading, the text will be fragmented and multi-layered, creating a narrative soundscape that mimics the notoriously impenetrable nature of the book itself.

If you'd like to participate in this durational performance by reading an extract of the text, please contact events@mattsgallery.org by 6th August providing all contact details (incl. telephone).

The second in our series of our Trailer events in partnership with X Marks the Bökship, leading towards our Autumn exhibition REVOLVER II.
