Poetics of Emotional Research with Anaïs Duplan
Jun 12, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
What does methodology entail for poets? I offer that writing poetry demands an ongoing process of artistic and emotional research, where research is a process of continually narrowing down one’s question. Some research happens just by thinking. Through guided readings, discussions, creative exercises, and workshops, we will explore what research, documentation, and archiving have to offer the poetic process.
Anaïs Duplan is the author of the full-length poetry collection Take This Stallion (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2016) and the chapbook Mount Carmel and the Blood of Parnassus (Monster House Press, 2017). Their poems and essays have appeared on PBS News Hour and in Hyperallergic, the Academy of American Poets, Poetry Society of America, Fence, Boston Review, The Journal, and in other publications. Duplan is also an artist and curator who has facilitated exhibitions at the Distillery Gallery, Elastic Arts, Disjecta, the Radical Abacus, Public Space One, and at Mengi in Reykjavík, Iceland. Their visual works have appeared or are forthcoming in group exhibitions at Flux Factory, Thomas Robertello Gallery, Daata Editions, the 13th Baltic Triennial in Lithuania, and the Institute of Contemporary Art in LA. Anaïs is the founder of the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program for artists of color in Iowa City and is the joint Public Programs Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art and the Studio Museum in Harlem.
