Poem Brut at Rich Mix

November Saturday 25th, 2017 : 7pm – Free entry
Poem Brut at Rich Mix, 35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA

A literary event celebrating of the visual, visceral, messy, handwritten and colourful in poetry with new unique commissions from writers exploring alternate ways of making literature. Each presentation will be different from the last, with readings, performances and talks alongside pop up exhibits, interactions, video poems and more.

Featuring new works from Harry Man, Imogen Reid, Stephen Emmerson, Hiromi Suzuki, Paul Hawkins, Chloe Spicer, Kate Wakeling, Christian Patracchini, Patrick Cosgrove and Christopher Stephenson. These works will explore the possibilities of literature and liveness, responding to the page and to the act of writing itself.

Commissions include explorations of erasure and lettering, dyslexia, dyspraxia, and poetry, video poems, gif poems, passive reading, children’s languages, abstract illustration and more.

Poem Brut is an exploration of poetry and colour, handwriting, composition, abstraction, scribbling, and illustration, affirming the possibilities of the page, the pen, the pencil – in a computer age – generating over a dozen events, multiple exhibitions, workshops, conferences and publications. Our first event will be followed by an exhibition – ‘Hard to Read’ – also at the Rich Mix, opening December 9th. 3:AM Magazine, a partner in the project, is also running open call for new works that fit within the tradition.
