In conjunction with her Armas Desnudas art exhibition at Mighty Fine Arts, WordSpace presents Swirve and Rosemary Meza-DesPlas,  kicking off the Swirve Presents Swirve Series at WordSpace. Rosemary Meza-DesPlas has always written poems or short stories in my sketchbooks. The poems and short stories seem to compliment the rough and scratchy sketches of half-formed visual ideas. In 1994 she published a poetry chapbook titled “The Laughter Between My Legs” and created drawings to go along with each poem in the book.

photo-111Swirve is a Dallas music, spoken word and experimental performance ensemble featuring Tamitha Curiel, Chris Curiel and Gerard Bendiks. The members have been known to play the trumpet backwards, the drums upside-down, and  shout sideways. They have performed in galleries, nightclubs, festivals and bbqs. They have also collaborated with many of Dallas’s other fine artists, including Tammy Gomez, Mad Swirl. Alison Starr, Kenny Withrow, and members of Yells at Eels.
