Electricity is on the move. So, too, is language. The 'Lectric Collective is interested in orchestrating collisions between the language arts and other art forms, to re-establish a kinetic relationship among them, and to ignite artistic mobility through its diverse contemporary vehicles. We are devoted to process and the healthy continuation of artistic junctions.

Together, the collective has written one collaborative chapbook (One Hundred), a short play (Breadsongs), has created a variety of visual works, and curated a number of events, detailed on the PROJECTS page.

The collective was formed by Jillian Roberts, Kelsa Trom, and Sarah Rothberg in March 2010. They once resided happily together in Oakland, CA and are now scattered between San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Brooklyn.

Updates and Upcoming Powwow

The second show is in the works and we're getting really excited about it! Mark your calendars: the reading will be on the evening of Thursday, October 21, again at Krowswork Gallery. Thanks to Jasmine's generosity, we're also going to have additional viewing time the following day, for anyone who can't make the reading (or just wants to spend a little more time with the artwork).

Our poets this time around are Jessica Fisher, Jesse Nathan, and Christopher Bennett, and we have a number of very talented artists who are already busy making what are sure to be extraordinary pieces.

As a precursor to the main event, we're having a little meet-up this Friday to bring together our artists and writers from this show and the last. We're looking to get everyone involved in each others' processes, and hope that with some informal discussion (and a little booze + food), we'll end the evening feeling in tune with each others' creative pulses.

This event is open to anyone who'd like to come / however many people we have space for, so if you're interested, send us an email at lectriccollective@gmail.com.
