You’re It!: Puglionesi, Shaltout, Amos, and Shlon

Join the Red Room for an evening of spoken word, video, performance, sound, and music with Alicia Puglionesi, Marina Shaltout, Rachel Amos, and Katie Schlon.

Alicia Puglionesi is a writer, historian, and Baltimore resident who studies questions of faith and doubt, orthodoxy and marginality that underpin the field of parapsychology. Her writing, both scholarly and journalistic, traces efforts to understand the unknown — often in amateur, fringe, and ‘para’-sciences.

Marina Shaltout is a multimedia artist from Tuscon, AZ who combines sculpture/installation processes with video and performance. Her work is primarily concerned with the portrayal of female destructive forces. She gives space and recognition to emotional breakdowns in order to elevate the notion of female “hysteria” beyond its designation of psychotic behavior.

Rachel Amos is a painter, filmmaker, and performance artist from Baltimore, Maryland. She explores the psychology behind feelings that connect us to one another through the use of
imagery and sound. Her performances and films are often made up of found materials and sometimes include her paintings.

Katie Shlon is a Baltimore-based conceptual artist exploring the social implications of built environments. Katie creates site-specific installations, makes music, and takes field recordings
to archive and explore the complex relationships we have with buildings, the land, and each other.
