Quinn Latimer
Wednesday 15 May 2019

Quinn Latimer will do a reading from her most recent book Like a Woman: Essays, Readings, Poems (Sternberg Press, 2017). After a reading of selected texts, Latimer will discuss the process and making and structure of the collection, among them the idea of writing between the page and performance. Latimer’s writings—her essays, autofictions, poems, art criticism, and more hybrid texts written for live performance—move increasingly among forms of poetics, criticality, and orality. She will discuss how the movement from writing to speaking, and back again, inflects the current writing she does, and how the expectations of a live audience can change the work on the page itself.

Quinn Latimer is a writer and editor originally from California. Together with Chus Martínez, she is working on a new research project at Institut Kunst, Basel, which considers questions of gender, power, aesthetics, and language. Latimer was editor-in-chief of publications for documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel.

Metod is an ongoing series of talks about working methods within the field of contemporary art and culture.
