Living Writers Series: Frances Richard
October 17, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 7:45 pm | Kresge Town Hall
The writers in this series will present across multiple genres, to include poetry, fiction, criticism, and various hybrid genres. Each will explore ways that language tests thresholds of culture, race, nation, sex, gender, and desire through the creative imagination. Central to each will be how these thresholds are performed, tested, broken, clarified and complicated in their works.
Frances Richard is the author of Anarch. (Futurepoem, 2012), The Phonemes (Les Figues Press, 2012) and See Through (Four Way Books, 2003), as well as the chapbooks Shaved Code (Portable Press at Yo-Yo Labs, 2008) and Anarch. (Woodland Editions, 2008). She writes frequently about contemporary art and is co-author, with Jeffrey Kastner and Sina Najafi, of Odd Lots: Revisiting Gordon Matta-Clark’s “Fake Estates” (Cabinet Books, 2005). She has been a visiting scholar at the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the recipient of a Creative Capital/Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant and, most recently, a research grant from the Graham Foundation. Currently she teaches at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
