Travis Jeppesen: Marathon reading of The Suiciders

Fri, May 9, 2014  1–9 PM

Location: Third Floor Peter Norton Family Galleries

Travis Jeppesen will read the entire text of his novel The Suiciders in a single day, an endurance performance that reflects Jeppesen’s commitment to taking writing into contexts that intersect visual art and performance. In The Suiciders, a group of friends occupies an indeterminate house in an unidentified American suburb and replays a continuous loop of eternal exile and youth. Permanently in their late teens, the seven young men are fluid and mutable ciphers, although endowed with highly reflexive, and wholly generic, internal lives.

Free with Museum admission. No special tickets or reservations are required.
