Historically broadsides were large sheets of paper printed on one side only announcing events or proclamations – like the Declaration of Independence – or simply advertisements. Today, broadside printing is done by many smaller printers and publishers as a fine art variant, with poems often being available as broadsides, intended to be framed and hung on the wall.
So it was an interesting match when the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut invited five writers to complement its current visual art show, “Endworks: Out of Darkness,” at @287 Gallery & Meeting Place. The written commentary of writers, entitled “Broadsides: Writers’ Response to Endworks,” addresses selected visual statements about domestic violence and sexual abuse.
Endworks: Out of Darkness runs through August 4, 2017 at @287 Gallery & Meeting Place.
June 2 is the opening reception for Broadsides: Writers’ Response to Endworks. To register, please visit here.
