This reading is in in conjunction with the exhibition No Joke, dedicated to Kathryn Hixson who passed away in the Fall of 2010. Participants will read from Kathryn's writing and their creative responses to her work.

Kathryn Hixson was one of the most distinguished art critics in Chicago, an amazing teacher, advisor and good friend. She was finishing a PhD dissertation at the University of Texas Austin on the role of humor in the work of Bruce Nauman and Richard Prince.

In the spirit of her spontaneity, criticality and wise-ass attitude, recent M.F.A graduates from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago pay tribute to Kathryn and her influence on the latest generation of emerging artists. No Joke features new work by: Andy Cahill, Alan & Michael Fleming, Yasi Ghanbari, Danny Greene, Joe Grimm, Marissa Perel, Aaron David Ross, and Michael Vallera. The show runs from April 2 – April 30, 2011.
