Ineffable is a product of the Fine Arts Reading Room (FARR) winter residency, culminating to students’ research in playwriting and dramaturgy. According to the Facebook event page, Sue E. and Ollie V. will be reading the latest version of their script, which examines silence in the lives of two queer, African and Caribbean people. The same source states that, “within this liminal space, Pharah and Mars remember their youth together in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal. To them, this was an island of sexuality and creativity; an island removed from their families overseas and encased in silence.”

- When: April 12 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
With pieces ranging from video and performance art to sound, electronic arts and virtual reality, External Memory showcases the Intermedia Cyberarts (IMCA) 400 graduating student exhibition. Open for one night only, 16 students question the concept of the “external memory,” how it affects the environment and exists in our recollections. As described on the Facebook event page, “traces of our experiences can reside on a hard drive, in an object, on the internet, or in the mind of someone else. Smells, sounds, movements, tastes and sights have the potential to provoke the resurgence of buried thoughts, emotions, and impulses.”
- Where: Eastern Bloc, 7240 Clark St.
- Vernissage and performances on April 12 at 6:30 p.m.
