Author of The Hatred of Poetry, Ben Lerner will be participating in a talk at London’s RCA on October 10.
The evening will focus on the relationship between poetry, fine art and criticism. The panel discussion will be moderated by writer and critic Brian Dillon and also includes Emily LaBarge, Holly Pester and Heather Phillipson.
Connected by a core interest in literature, the panel approach the subject in multi-directional ways. LaBarge is a writer and researcher who “examines the language of anxiety in contemporary literature.” Pester is a poet and multi-disciplinary writer whose work expands into sound, performance and installation. Similarly, Phillipson’s practice is diverse, working across a myriad of video, sculpture, drawing, music, text and live events.
Ben Lerner is also the author of two novels Leaving the Atocha Station and 10:04 and has also published three poetry collections inlcuding The Lichtenberg Figures, Angle of Yaw and Mean Free Path.
