Poems inspired by the universe will be presented in conjunction with “Candle (from Earth into a Black Hole).” Everyone is invited to participate; sign up here.
Katie Paterson’s Candle (from Earth into a Black Hole) unfolds over time during multiple activations over the course of its installation.
At each, the candle will burn for two hours, releasing different layers of scent alongside interventions inspired by the installation.
The candle will burn from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Interventions begin in the Reading Room at 6 p.m.
Additional activations on Nov. 7 and 21.
