7.30-9pm (doors open 7.20pm), Friday 15 May 2015, CCA Theatre, Glasgow.
Gnommero Multiplicity includes twenty-seven new works from artists and writers who have responded to Italo Calvino's memo on multiplicity – the last published lecture from 'Six Memos for the Next Millennium'.
Each contributor to the publication has supported its production. Twelve of these people will present live versions of their work during the launch – in the form of readings, performances, screenings and pre-recorded sound.
Multiplicity will be available for audience members to take away at the event. The Gnommero Collection – all five pamphlets in a limited edition printed envelope – will also be distributed after the event. The Collection is available to pre-order here - http://gnommero.tumblr.com/gnommero-collection
Contributors presenting work at the launch are:
Conal McStravick and Simone Hutchinson; Lauren Hall; Kirsty Hendry; Aniara Omann; Chin Li, with Lin Li; Giuseppe Mistretta; Lila Matsumoto, with Adam Butcher; Richard Taylor; Rebecca Wilcox; Carrie Skinner.
