Join SSB for a cocktail and Literary Interlude with local author BETT WILLIAMS (The Wrestling Party and Girl Walking Backwards) and a preview of SSB Artist-in-Residence ARTURO VIDICH’S novel in progress, STAGE FALL at Santa Fe Spirits Tasting Room (308 Read t., Santa Fe).
Born and raised in New York City, Artist and Author Aruturo Vidich’s work interrogates human-animal relationships, and the historical, poetic, and visceral narratives therein. Artworks are primarily staged multi-media productions, but often cross over into non-performative standalone sculptures and video. Vidich is now working on his first novel, STAGE FALL, a science fiction novel, an interspecies love and loss story set in the perilous wonderland of 1950s Soviet Union. Stage Fall employs biting satire, fantasy, and alternative history to deconstruct the obsession our contemporary cultures have with self-reinvention, performed identities, and the suppression of memory.
