LASTING, LEAVING, LEFT: An Unfinished Collaboration with James Hillman, Margot McLean, and Mermer Blakeslee
Art, disease, and death reside together in a parallel universe within the city, on the narrow streets of emergency rooms and underground boulevards of re-hab centers. With images, words and sounds we will grapple with the material of dying--the smells, the daily routine, the special meals, the sips of wine, the refuse. The more this material is worked, the more permeable the veil between life and death becomes, inviting insights, illuminations, curiosities. To engage thoroughly in dying is a work of art, ultimate and collaborative. Margot McLean-Hillman will present her work that originated during the time of her care-taking. Writer Mermer Blakeslee will offer a second voice, reading poems and various texts. James Hillman's participation will be felt in his ideas, his love for beauty, his lasting commitment to soul.
PROGRAM NOTE: James Hillman was a Founding Fellow of the Dallas Institute. Three other Founding Fellows, who were also his colleagues in psychology, will participate in this event: Drs. Robert Sardello, Joanne Stroud, and Gail Thomas.
Saturday, 6:30-8 pm: October 13. Reception at 6 pm
