PK, Cancer & the Tragic Ruts of Time – Geri Gale

Geri Gale’s project for the 2023 Jack Straw Program is a memoir titled PK, Cancer & the Tragic Ruts of Time that delves into the emotional complexity of breast cancer while also being a love letter to her wife PK and to the world. In her conversation with curator Priscilla Long, she talks about the artistic influences in her life, how PK helped her survive through cancer, and the impact cancer has had on her work. “PK is the rock, the foundation, and she’s the one that helped me survive through this cancer. I don’t think that I would have ever been able to do it without her.”

Music by Bryan Smith, produced through the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
