Dear Friends,

We hope you can join us for an Agitprop reading at the San Diego
Museum of Art this Thursday, June 24,  7pm, with Mark Wallace & K.
Lorraine Graham

In conjunction with Agitprop Gallery, the Agitprop Reading Series is
collaborating with the San Diego Museum of Art to present Thursday
Summer Salons featuring contemporary artists and writers from Southern
California. Museum admission is $12 for adults, $8 for students with
college ID, and open to the public. The reading will take place in the
room with the “Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece”
Exhibition.

Mark Wallace is the author of more than fifteen books and chapbooks of
poetry, fiction, and essays. Temporary Worker Rides A Subway won the
2002 Gertrude Stein Poetry Award and was published by Green Integer
Books. His critical articles and reviews have appeared in numerous
publications, and he has co-edited two essay collections, Telling It
Slant: Avant Garde Poetics of the 1990s, and A Poetics of Criticism.
Most recently he has published a short story collection, Walking
Dreams (2007), and a book of poems, Felonies of Illusion (2008).
Forthcoming in early 2011 is his second novel, The Quarry and The Lot.

K. Lorraine Graham is a writer and visual artist. She is the author of
Terminal Humming (Edge Books, 2009) and several chapbooks, including

Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Traffic, Area Sneaks,
Foursquare and elsewhere. She currently lives in San Diego with her
partner, Mark Wallace, and Lester Young, a pacific parrotlet.

During your visit will be able to explore the works of living artists
and writers, participate in hands-on art making activities, enjoy a
cocktail, and view the Museum’s current exhibitions and collections.
We invite the public to join some of the most exciting artists working
in Southern California and immerse themselves in what’s happening
right now in our local art scene

Artist Presentations will be occurring in the museum before and after
the reading.

Judith Pedroza will recreate the block where she grew up in Mexico
City in scale model with her work Marina Nacional 80. Visitors will be
invited to help her expand the work throughout the evening by adding
additional buildings and roads.

Michael Trigilio will present one of his video works. Michael is a
founding member of the independent radio project Neighborhood Public
