This Nomadic Nights reading and screening was presented in conjunction with The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project: a series of artist-produced billboards and activations that will unfold along Interstate 10 Freeway from Florida to California through spring 2015. Fowler’s chapter of billboards, it is so, is it so – launched in Houston, TX on June 21, 2014 – expands upon a body of work she began in 2010, in which she reproduces excerpts of text from seminal 20th century author Gertrude Stein’s Tender Buttons.
