Ben Lerner @ RCA, Oct 10

10 October 2016

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.

Ψ (Psi) @ Fokidos, Nov 16 – Dec 21

16 November 2015

The Ψ (Psi) group project launches in Fokidos this week, running in the Athens space from November 16 to December 21.

The project, conceived in December of 2014 in the Dutch city of Maastricht (and “under the shade of Sol LeWitt’s Wall drawing #801: Spiral”), will finally materialise in the Greek city under the curatorial direction of Pádraic E. Moore and Sofia Stevi.

The project, which is primarily concerned with “the transfer of thoughts from one person’s mind to another”, features the works of seven artists including Sophia Al Maria and Quinn Latimer.

The artists are asked to provide in writing an idea or image that possessed some sort of personal significance, and these ideas are then translated into “gouache paintings” by artist Navine G. Khan-Dossos directly on the walls of the space.

See the Fokidos website for details. **
