Reflections on Etel Adnan
February 27, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Once I was asked in front of a television camera: “Who is the most important person you ever met?” and I remember answering: “A mountain.” I thus discovered that Tamalpais was at the very center of my being. — Etel Adnan
Join us for a conversation on the person, writer, artist, publisher, correspondent, and friend—Etel Adnan.
Etel’s presence in Bay Area poetry communities, international networks, and throughout the visual art world, is a force as gentle and moving as Mount Tamalpais. Denise Newman describes this mountain as being so central to her work—a body of work that is vast, always expanding outward—while holding onto this central focus, always returning to the mountain.
Deena, Brandon, and Denise will discuss Etel’s life, work, and continuing influence. There will be time for open discussion among participants.
