legible/illegible: opening beyond the space of identities

CLICK HERE TO VIEW ALL SPRING FESTIVAL 2015 POSTS

Tune in to the MR Spring Festival online to follow blog postings by the curators and our team of festival writers, Jaime Shearn Coan and Tara Willis. We have asked the writers to respond as artists, and as such welcome their unique vantages. Read along in real-time as each share their impressions of the various festival events. In casual blog form, these writings will be offered as open-ended dialogues.
