Description

In this lecture, Renee Gladman wanders through the writing of the four novels of her Ravicka series, examining the deeper science behind two architectural phenomena that characterize the city-state: migrating buildings and invisible structures. The lecture will conclude with the premiere of a sound piece, specifically commissioned for this project, composed and performed by Mauricio Pauly.

This event is free and open to the public, and you can RSVP here.

Renee Gladman is a writer and artist preoccupied with crossings, thresholds, and geographies as they play out at the intersections of poetry, prose, drawing and architecture. She is the author of thirteen published works, including a cycle of novels about the city-state Ravicka and a collection of linked auto-essays on the intersections of writing, drawing, and community, which won the 2017 CLMP Firecracker Award for Creative Non-Fiction.

Her drawings have been collected in Prose Architectures (2017) and One Long Black Sentence, a series of white ink drawings on black paper and indexed by Fred Moten (forthcoming spring 2020). She has been awarded fellowships, artist grants, and residencies from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and the Lannan Foundation, among others. 

Gladman has been a visiting artist and an affiliate faculty member of the MFA in Creative Writing & Poetics at UW Bothell.
