CoPAC and the Shaking Ray Levi Society present
David Greenberger: “A King in Milwaukee”
Free admission (donations welcome, and the 30 minute film is “neither tedious nor endless”)
This evening will feature a screening of the documentary “A King in Milwaukee” and a talk by artist David Greenberger about his current and future work, including an exciting new project featuring participants at Signal Centers in Chattanooga and the ensemble Prime Lens.David Greenberger has been exploring the nature of conversation and unique, often ignored voices since 1979. Originally focused on aspects of aging, his work has grown to include individuals living outside of or on the fringes of much of society’s awareness. These books, recordings and performances underscore the dignity in what can be ordinary or even fragmented stories and anecdotes—all rich with a conversational voice. He continues to be a keynote speaker at universities, museums and conferences on aging.
Greenberger has an impossibly long resume, having been the subject of four documentary films, a guest on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and the PBS show “Life,” a commentator for National Public Radio (including All Things Considered, Hearing Voices, This I Believe, and Lost & Found Sounds), a TEDx Talk lecturer, the creator of the long-running publication “Duplex Planet,” the author of four books, and a writer for Rolling Stone, Spin, Harper’s, The Alt and many others. He has released over 20 CDs as a main performer and collaborated with Terry Adams (NRBQ), David Hidalgo & Louis Perez (Los Lobos), Robyn Hitchcock, Yo La Tengo, and many others, and his work has been covered by The New York Times, Vanity Fair, The Village Voice and many other publications.
