11/20: TODAY! Paul D. Miller & Paul Rucker, Artists-in-Residence: Welcome Lecture & Pizza Party
Paul Miller, also known as DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid, and Paul Rucker, are two artists-in-residence on campus this year. Each artist will give a brief presentation on the projects they have planned for their residency, and how being at MICA and in Baltimore contributes to their visions. Both artists are eager to interact with MICA’s community so lunch will be provided following the presentations and there will be time to meet them.

11/26: The Sociologists, Cry Baby, Belmont -
Poetry & Music at the Graduate Studio Center
Writer and artist Stephanie Barber has created a poetic, conceptual and philosophical body of work in a variety of media. Many of her videos are concerned with the content, musicality and experiential qualities of language. They ferry viewers through philosophical inquiry with the unexpected oars of play, emotionalism, story, and humor. Many balance several seemingly unrelated concepts subtly suggesting or brazenly demanding a focused and imaginative reception. Many create gently complex, emotional studies. Others are funny; a sorrowful sort of funny. There are videos of obsessive observing and ambient sounds; small artificial fireworks, animals, and silence. They are tightly wound, dense, and light simultaneously.
In Belmont, poet Stephen Burt maps out the joys and the limits of the life he has chosen, the life that chose him, examining and reimagining parenthood, marriage, adulthood, and suburbia alongside a brace of wild or pretty alternatives: the impossible life of a girl raised by cats, the disappointed lives of would-be rock stars, and the real life to which he returns, with his family, in the town that gives the book its name, driving home in an ode-worthy silver Subaru. Can a life be invented the way a poem can? What does it mean for a precocious child, or a responsible grownup, to depict the world we want? With wit, beauty, tenderness, and virtuosity, these poems define the precarious end of extended adolescence, and then ask what stands beyond.
Baltimore-based musician Ruby Fulton writes music which invites listeners to explore non-musical ideas through sound. Her musical portfolio includes explorations into mental illness, Buddhism, philosophy, psychedelic drugs, addiction, and chess strategy; and profiles of iconic popular figures Syd Barrett, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Ringo Starr.
Poet Amy Eisner teaches contemporary American poetry and a variety of genre-bending graduate and undergraduate writing courses at the Maryland Institute College of Art. A graduate of Harvard University and The Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins, she has taught at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and CTY, and spent several years on multimedia (ad)ventures in children's learning, narrative history, and e-book authoring. Her poems have appeared in American Literary Review, Fence, Poet Lore, and dozens of other journals, and been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
