2014 Other Words Workshops

Terri Witek

Writing in the Crisp-Ellert Museum with Terri Witek and Cyriaco Lopes

Poet Terri Witek and visual artist Cyriaco Lopes lead an all-genre workshop that encourages writing about oceans and rivers. The workshop meets in the galleries that house their current show featuring world waters, Currents/Correntes.


The poet Terri Witek and the visual artist Cyriaco Lopes have been collaborating since 2005. While Witek often writes poetry about art, Lopes' art work often investigates language. A signature of their collaborations is that their media, art and poetry, interweave while each retains its identity. By reinventing, interrupting and restaging each other's words and images, they create a hybrid third possibility. Their collaborations so far have extended to video, performance, photography, drawing, and artists' books.
