Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth
BY LAURIE ANN GUERRERO
@ VOL 20
ON DEC 01, 2015
"This poem is an ode to every hard-working artist who knows the joy of struggle from which their art comes."
In Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 20, poet laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero looks back at her ancestors’ history of labor and struggle as art, a legacy of poets, musicians, and painters whose artistry was a way to map and ultimately transcend the world. Art, she says, is a pursuit of truth. It was her ancestor’s many generations of that pursuit that ultimately gave her the privilege and position of being asked to make art: the maker, not the object. Through poetry, Guerrero invites us to share in that space of openness, vulnerability and ultimately grace.
The State of Music Criticism
BY TRAVIS BUFFKIN
@ VOL 21
ON FEB 23, 2016
"Don't listen to music critics. Listen to music."
Writer and musician Travis Buffkin worships at the Church of Nelson-Dylan-Simone of The-Not-So-Disparate-Trinity in this irreverent, wild and thoughtful look at life, music, and the hierarchy of taste.
