Summary
"Writer fayemi shakur worked collaboratively with fifteen Newark-based, female-identified writers, poets, and visual artists to create an artbook oriented around both individualism and collective identity. shakur and her collaborators present new perspectives on poetry, camaraderie, performance, and bookmaking. In addition to the tangible collection of work, shakur is also organizing performances and gatherings throughout the duration of the exhibition. These gatherings are ways to share lyrical and literary formats of addressing intersectionality in the art space--and are intended to be a place to not only perform, but also workshop new ideas."--Project for Empty Space Web site.
