JULIANKNXX AND FRIENDS PRESENTS CALEB FEMI + SHINGAI  talk/event
Click to enlarge Oct 25, 2019 7:30pm
A night of conversation and performance with poet and former Young People’s Laureate for London Caleb Femi and singer and Noisettes vocalist and bassist Shingai, curated by julianknxx.
 
In conversation with julianknxx, the artists explore questions of self-making – from the challenges of communicating one’s narrative as an artist to navigating African pasts and British futures. These conversations are interspersed with poetry readings and musical performances.
 
The evening draws from poet and creative director julianknxx’s buzzing network of musicians, fashion designers and other creatives to place Black British artists in conversation with each other. Against a looming post-Brexit Britain, these conversations centre the contributions of African immigrants to London life. The event’s intimate atmosphere, framed by the lived experience of the artists, stimulates aesthetic but also personal and even spiritual conversations. Creating a moment for reflection on significant creative practices, julianknxx and friends is a live archiving of Black British history.

STATES OF THE BODY PRODUCED BY LOVE  talk/event
Click to enlarge Oct 25, 2019 6:30pm
Poets CAConrad and Nisha Ramayya explore the themes of mysticism and ritual in their work through readings followed by a conversation with Sarah Shin.
 
The discussion will consider: What is the relationship between love, divinity and abjection? How, through decolonial and feminist lenses, can we bring the infinite expanse into contact with present crises so that the mythic reckons with material conditions of oppression? And, what strategies for survival and transformation can collective and personal ritual practice offer this moment of ecological emergency, violent borders and increasing intolerance?
 
CAConrad’s (Soma)tic Poetry Rituals are, for the poet, ‘a different kind of investment in the everyday’, allowing poetry to become an integral part of daily life or political actions on the streets.
 
Ramayya’s debut States of the Body Produced by Love (Ignota, 2019) is a modern mystical journey through love. Meditating on diasporic identity, language and resistance, Ramayya conjures an opalescent world by way of Tantric ritual and myth.
CAConrad is a 2019 Creative Capital Fellow and the author of nine books of poetry and essays, including a forthcoming book about ritual and poetry with Ignota Books (2020). Their book While Standing in Line for Death (Wave Books) received the 2018 Lambda Award. They teach regularly at Columbia University in NYC and Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam.
 
Nisha Ramayya grew up in Glasgow and is now based in London. She is a poet and Lecturer in Creative Writing at Queen Mary University of London. Her pamphlets include Notes on Sanskrit, Correspondences, and In Me the Juncture, as well as Threads, co-authored with Sandeep Parmar and Bhanu Kapil. States of the Body Produced by Love is her first full-length book.
 
Sarah Shin is a publisher and curator. She is a co-founder and director of Silver Press and Ignota Books and the founder of New Suns, a curation and storytelling project.
