Porchlight presents Oops, I Did It Again: Stories About Repetition

Saturday, June 1, 2019 4:30-6pm, San Francisco


Hosted by the Bay Area's long-running Porchlight Storytelling Series, "Oops, I Did It Again: Stories About Repetition" invites storytellers to explore the magic and mystery of the things we do over and over. Whether its describing day jobs, night shifts, bad choices, or nasty habits, these stories celebrate and lament all too common sensations; stuck in a groove, won't quit, don't stop, can't fight the feeling. With live musical accompaniment by Marc Capelle.

Part of "Performance as Edition," curated by visual artist Jonn Herschend for the McEvoy Foundation for the Arts' exhibition "What is an edition, anyway?" on view May 24 - September 7, 2019. This series acknowledges performance's implicit conundrum between poles of repetitive and unique actions. Original, silkscreened posters, designed by Herschend and THE THING Quarterly co-founder Will Rogan, are released at each event. Also curated by Herschend is "That's Funny," a stand-up comedy performance emceed by Bonanza on Saturday, July 20 and "Score for the Day Before," an audiovisual concert by LA-based punk bad No Age.

"What is an edition, anyway" surveys historical practices of creating and distributing editions, presenting an array of limited-edition artist's books, prints, album covers, original artworks, and other objects from the McEvoy Family Collection and the collection of Thomas Cvikota. Newly commissioned projects by Enrique Chagoya, Daniel Clowes, Ala Ebtekar, Jonn Herschend, Stephanie Syjuco, and Hank Willis Thomas respond to these traditions through photography, performance, illustration, and installation.
