Get Pataphysical at UMMA this afternoon

What's Pataphysics? I don't know, but here's what the University of Michigan Museum of Art has to say about it:

Presented by UMMA, the Avant-Garde Interest Group in the Rackham Graduate School, and the UM Department of English, this UMMA Dialogue features experimental poet Christian Bök (University of Calgary), art historian David Doris (UM), and music performance professor Stephen Rush (UM) in a series of presentations and performances inspired by Pataphysics — a philosophical precursor of Dada and Surrealism that reveals and dissolves the conceptual categories that constitute our understanding of reality by playfully placing everyday objects that we take for granted into odd, strange, and funny contexts.
Sounds sexy and surreal.
