The Cooley Gallery presents a modern symposium, replete with food, drink, and music, exploring the spatial logic of late capitalism as expressed in art, logging, and ecstatic dancing. The evening, organized by Cooley Gallery director Stephanie Snyder and novelist and Clear Cut Press co-founder Matthew Stadler, begins with the viewing of Case Works 9 exhibition: The Valentine Exchange, then moves to the student union for live music by The Watery Graves and We Two and the Universe; love poem recitation by Heather Watkins, curator for The Valentine Exchange; and a lecture on the history of logging by Doug Sackman â€™90, historian at the University of Puget Sound. The event includes mind bending archival films of high-lead logging, and interstitial ephemera by Matthew Stadler.
