International Writers Series: Verónica Gerber Bicecci

Join us for an evening of prose in translation with genre-defying author Verónica Gerber Bicecci. Bicecci will be joined in conversation by Paco Tijerina, PhD Candidate in Hispanic Studies.

Verónica Gerber Bicecci is a visual artist who writes. Her artistic quest— the interface between the word and the image—began with the series of drawings Diagrams of Silence, an exercise in visual exhumation based on the punctuation of various poems and the book Mudanza (2010; Moving Out), a collection of essays about writers who deserted conventional literature to become visual artists. Her fiction and prose work have been translated into English by Christina MacSweeney, including the novel Empty Set (Coffee House Press, 2018), and In the Eye of Bambi (Whitechapel Gallery, 2020). She is based in Mexico City.

This event is co-sponsored by the University Libraries, Department of Romance Languages & Literatures, Program in Comparative Literature, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, the American Culture Studies Program, the Center for the Humanities, and the Center for Literary Arts.

Free and open to all, registration requested.
