As part of the Queens International 2016, Ugly Duckling Presse, Knockdown Center, and the Queens Museum in collaboration with Trans-Pecos co-present an evening with Poet Transmit. Poet Transmit is a project launched by artist/curator Victoria Keddie and writer/artist Cat Tyc as a way to engage in the connections between poetry, transmission, and performance.
Through a consortium of publishers, artists, poets, and transmission-based organizations, Keddie and Tyc’s project explores textual practice and modes of transmission, exposing the potential of poetic projection, kinetic dialogue, and expanded fields of time. What transpires is a televisual poetry reading series that explores alternative areas of practice and reflects on its own methodologies.
Documented events will be broadcast on E.S.P. TV’s cable access program on MNN, as well as with Wave Farm Radio (operated in Acra, NY as well as online).
