RADIO ATHÈNES: QUINN LATIMER READS FROM ANTHOLOGY
Radio Athènes invites you to an evening with Quinn Latimer. Latimer will read from Anthology, her book-in-process, which examines issues of language, class, and gender in texts that move fluidly between critical and poetic registers. In her reading she will specifically explore the form and function of the refrain and its serial ecstasies.
Latimer is an American poet, critic, and editor based in Basel and Athens. She is the author of Rumored Animals (2012), which won the American Poetry Journal Book Prize, and Sarah Lucas: Describe This Distance (2013), which explores the work of Lucas as well as shame, palindromes, passivity, fertility statuary, Napoleon, Artaud, Beckett, and Sontag. A regular contributor to Artforum and a contributing editor to frieze, her essays and poems also appear in many artist monographs and critical anthologies. Her writings and readings have been featured widely, including at Kunsthalle Zurich, Switzerland; Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo; Chisenhale Gallery, London; Serpentine Galleries, London; the Venice Architecture Biennale, Italy; and Qalandia International, Ramallah/Jerusalem. She is currently Editor-in-Chief of Publications for documenta 14.
