Goethe Pop Up Seattle dedicates an evening to the important experimental and feminist author and proto-Riot Grrrl Kathy Acker, who came to Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art for residencies in 1980 and 1989. The exhibition is divided into three sections, presenting three thresholds in Ackerâ€™s evolution as a writer represented by three novels. The accompanying reading is a staging of a reading held by Acker with artist and poet Marilyn Stablein and writer Paul de Barros at Gary Wilkieâ€™s Context Bookstore in 1980. The reading features all three as witnesses to the original event, reading selected texts from their missing comrade.
