all velvet sentences as manifesto, Like a lesson against smooth language or an invitation to be feral hypertext
**NEW DATES FOR WORKSHOP + BOOK LAUNCH
January 23 – March 23, 2024
We are Emerson College’s platform for showcasing contemporary visual art.
Our focus is on presenting living artists, their ideas, experiments, and creative practices in the areas of media art, performance art, and emergent technologies, while critically examining these works in their social context. Our in-depth engagement with the temporary exhibitions and related public programming is based on the principle that artistic practice is an intellectual activity and works of art are a form of knowledge production.
Coming Up Next
Kameelah J. Rasheed
Get out of your way and learn to write with games, constraints, and algorithms. The workshop’s purpose is not to create a perfect piece of writing; rather, it is an invitation to get a bit feral and messy as we pull language into our orbit.
Kameelah J. Rasheed
Rasheed will offer a live annotation of her keynote lecture at the CODEX Foundation conference and responds to past and future versions of herself in conversation with ideas of translation, wayward writing, and spirit writing.
