Jillian McManemin and Rbt. Sps.

An Evening of Recitation and Song

hosted by Joseph Whitt

Jillian McManemin (b.1989 Englewood, New Jersey) is a multimedia artist who utilizes spoken word, video, and performance. Her work investigates the emotional structure of specific, often colorful characters in an attempt to reveal the ubiquity of heartache within a society of desire and longing. She graduated with a BFA from Pratt Institute, and has presented work at Anthology Film Archives (NYC), Brooklyn Fireproof (Brooklyn, NY), and Glasslands (Brooklyn, NY).  She also starred in a feature film called “The Cruel Tale of The Medicine Man” (2012) written and produced by “The Slipper Room”’s James Habacker and directed by Maria Beatty. She is currently co-creating a play and short film under the alias “The Honeymoon Heart Revival.”

Rbt. Sps. (b. 1984, Paducah, Kentucky) is a multimedia artist, writer and performer. As a lifelong resident of the Deep South, Sps.’s work deals predominately with rural eccentricities and extremes viewed through an autobiographical lens. His work has been featured in the Wiener Künstlerhaus (Vienna, Austria), P.P.O.W. Gallery (NYC), Interstate Projects (Brooklyn, NY), Antena Gallery (Chicago, Illinois), and Space 204 at Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee). His video series, This New Sitcom, will be featured in NYC’s Moving Image Contemporary Art Video Fair, March 7-10, 2013.

During the evening, Sps. will be offering his zine “Selected Video Stills 2004-2012″ (signed/numbered in an edition of 50) for sale.
