Fred Moten: The Sustain: Blackness and Poetry

Fred Moten: The Sustain: Blackness and Poetry
LOS ANGELES  •  REDCAT  •  Ongoing

Fred Moten works at the intersection of performance, poetry and critical theory. In his lecture The Sustain: Blackness and Poetry, Moten discusses instances of black poetic inscription in visual, plastic and performance art.

These inscriptions are by black artists, implying that there is such a thing as black poetic inscription and that many non-black artists engage in it. Through this talk, he seeks to shed light on some recent debates in the poetry world regarding race, politics, conceptualism and the form/purpose of the anthology. Professor of English at the University of California, Riverside, Moten is Theorist in Residence this spring in the CalArts Program in Aesthetics and Politics.

Poet Douglas Kearney will lead a post-lecture Q&A.
