‘Proposals For Landscapes: and other mutual antipathies’
This talk will offer a series of proposals For landscapes, a recalibration of the optics for a poetics of the conceptual. This reading will explore these possibilities across multiple registers of the material and linguistic possibilities of felt-thought. It will assert a space for itself between the symptomatic dismissal by the visual arts of poetry as ‘literary costume’ and the more recent neglectful mis-readings of conceptual art by writing at the expense of the conceptual histories of the lyric genre.
