Exhibit X
Christine Hume Christine Hume is the author of three books of poetry, and two chapbooks of lyric essays, most recently VENTIFACTS (Omnidawn, 2012). VENTIFACTS begins the year Hume's daughter develops a wind phobia, but quickly blows into lyric investigations of the wind in art, politics, and literature, highlighting the currents between imaginary relations and physical conditions. A bilingual edition of her selected poems from Lux Books, Wiesbaden, Germany will be coming out later this year.

Hume will perform selections of Ventifactsand "Speech Talks Back," a critical-creative curation of sound art that uses public speech overlaid with live narration. Find examples of her work here:
