What do we risk when we lay ourselves open through music, painting, or any other art form? What might we give up and what might we gain when we set out to craft something beautiful or provocative or simply expressive that the world did not previously hold? Given today’s artistic economy, to what extent is exposure—to other people and of the creative self—desirable? Join artist and educator Jason Graham, a slam poetry champion and speaker who performs hip hop as MOsley WOtta, for a conversation exploring the relationship between self-expression and vulnerability.
This discussion is presented as part of the 2017 Oregon Humanities Conversation Project. The Conversation Project brings Oregonians together to talk—across differences, beliefs, and backgrounds—about important and challenging issues and ideas. Doors open at 6pm. Beer & Wine available for purchase.
