Event Description: From Score to Speculative Lit with Artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed and Writer Anaïs Duplan This creative writing workshop, led by artist-in-residence Kameelah Janan Rasheed and writer/Afrofuturist Anaïs Duplan, begins with fragments of text from scores, or language-based artworks, made by public participants from the BPL exhibition Scoring the Stacks. From these fragments we endeavor to collaboratively write prose, poetry and flash fiction. With a nod to the contributions of Science-Fiction writer Octavia Butler, whose notion of ‘Primitive Hypertext’ is central to Rasheed’s thinking and the exhibition, this literary workshop takes chance and uncertainty as generative forces towards experimental writing. Seen through a lens of science fiction and Afrofuturism, writing is also a space to ideate possible futures and practices of self care. Duplan brings an interest in somatic techniques, incorporating breath and body awareness. The program ends with a live reading of the text(s) created. Anaïs Duplan is the author of a full-length poetry collection, Take This Stallion (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2016) and a chapbook, Mount Carmel and the Blood of Parnassus (Monster House Press, 2017). His poems and essays have been published by Hyperallergic, PBS News Hour, the Academy of American Poets, Poetry Society of America, Bettering American Poetry, and Ploughshares. His music criticism has appeared in Complex Magazine and THUMP. Duplan is a curator and the founder of the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program for artists of color. Kameelah Janan Rasheed: Scoring the Stacks is made possible by the Katowitz Radin Endowment, women.nyc and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
