The Finest Work Songs: Alan Lau and Susie Kozawa

On October 18th, Alan Lau and Susie Kozawa (longtime collaborators and working artists) will be revisiting a piece that they originally presented at the Seattle Art Museum in 1996. Lau’s part, initially a response to the Seattle Art Museum’s exhibit “In The American Grain,” will provide a reading poetry as well as words from four modernist American artists, while Kozawa will respond to Lau’s poetry as well as the space itself. Over e-mail, I asked the two to talk about their experiences with artistic collaboration, their experience with this piece, and with each other.
