The Crutch Room (installation)
The Crutch Room is an installation/immersive environment created by poet G.C. Waldrep and multimedia artist Steven Sherrill.  The installation includes some 700 crutches scavenged from a shuttered Pennsylvania hospital, with accompany sound installation.  Our hope, as practitioners, is that the Crutch Room will constitute an immersive ancillary environment, in effect a pocket universe, to which conference participants may repair.  Hugo Ball wrote, "One must be astonished totally, yet more and more softly.  This is how eternity wonders at the times and changes them.  One must wonder at the wonders.  And also at the wounds, the deepest and last wounds, and elevate them to the wondrous.”  Medbh McGuckian defines "the really faithful / memory" as "the part of a wound / that goes quiet."

Mystic Detectives (exhibition)
Exhibition: Samek Art Museum (ELC Third Floor)
Mystic Detectives explores the influences and echoes of Surrealism in contemporary art. These artists create imagery that taps the subconscious through abjection, humor and cognitive dissonance. They use these strategies to present diverse perspectives, socially aware art, and to tackle contemporary questions. These artists go beyond the canon of historic Surrealism and take the viewer to unfamiliar places.
