melencholia: hinge as innominate limina

a four part treatment on Melancholy by Will Alexander, Heller Levinson, Linda Lynch, and Mary Newell


Melancholia:  Hinge as Innominate Limina is the second multi-participant exfoliation of Heller Levinson’s Hinge Theory.  The four contributors, diverse in gender, ethnicity, location, and artistic medium, bring an intensity of flare to meet the melancholic certainty of transience and express its ongoing exfoliations in varied but confluent sonorities.  The collaboration includes two poetic essays and four drawings by Will Alexander; a section of Hinge Poetics by Heller Levinson; integrated poem/drawings by Levinson and visual artist Linda Lynch; and a meditation on the “Shades of Melancholy” focusing on Emily Dickinson by Mary Newell.

Refreshments and light snacks will be served.
