June 16, 6-10pm, with open hours continuing June 20 and 21, 2-6pm

This event will celebrate James Joyce’s Ulysses as the “enraptured paean to the world of the physical senses.” The novel takes place over the course of a single day, June 16, 1904, with 18 episodes that correspond to Homer’s Odyssey. Each of the 18 chapters of the book will be transformed into installations by artists, writers, performers, philosophers, and Joyce enthusiasts. Our Bloomsday will be an ambulatory experience that will mirror Joyce’s prose in all its juicy, uncompromising, vulnerable, fragmented, and synesthetic confusion.

With contributions from:

Abraham Adams, Sonel Breslav (Blonde Art Books), Ashton Cooper, Maggie Craig (Papercut Press), Simon Critchley, Anthony Cudahy, Moze Halperin, Kelsey Harrison, Bethany Ides, Victoria Keddie and Scott Kiernan (E.S.P. TV), Jillian McManemin, Michael Merck, Marrek Milde and Kristyna Milde, Laura Miller, Claire Mirocha and Vanessa Thill (Sorry Archive), Nathaniel Otting, Paul Pino (PAULAPART), Paul Pinto, Nicole Reber, Zefrey Throwell, Chloe Wyma, Alex Zandi, and more.

All are welcome. Email vanessa@knockdown.center for more info.
