Brooklyn Talks: Claudia Rankine Alexandra Bell + Doreen St Félix

July 19, 2018 @ 11:00 pm – July 20, 2018 @ 1:00 am
Brooklyn Museum

Join Claudia Rankine, poet, playwright, and co-founder of the Racial Imaginary Institute, as she examines the often-troubled manifestations of the racial imaginary in American poetry and explores counternarrative tactics of contemporary poets and artists. Her presentation is followed by a conversation with multidisciplinary artist Alexandra Bell, best known for her public art series Counternarratives and Doreen St. Félix, staff writer at The New Yorker. Bell uses the term “counternarratives” to describe her work, which investigates how images and text work together to affect the cultural imagination and narratives around race. Doreen St. Félix was previously staff writer at MTV News, and an editor-at-large at Lenny Letter.

Presented in partnership with the Racial Imaginary Institute.
