POETRY READING AT NOGUERAS BLANCHARD WITH TAREK LAKHRISSI, BILLY MORGAN AND OLIVIA DOUGLASS08.09.22.
Nogueras Blanchard gallery invites Juf to activate Joan Brossa’s exhibition Do you think that if I didn't like it / I could stay the way I do / and write the way I write? Taking the artist’s expanded conception of the poetic act as a starting point, the event brings together three poets and performers with a strong tie to contemporary art. The readings by TAREK LAKHRISSI, BILLY MORGAN and OLIVIA DOUGLASS test the current relevance of themes and interests that run through Brossa’s work —such as theatricality, visibility, the semiotics and iconography of popular culture, and the construction of publics through estrangement— putting them in relation to a situated and personal use of language that is traversed by categories of gender, sex and race.
