SHIPPING CHARGES APPLY Hauser & Wirth Publishers, Conversations in Contemporary Poetics: Precious Okoyomon and Bunny Rogers,
  Hauser & Wirth New York, 22nd Street, Tuesday 13 March 2018, 7 pm
CONTACT Hauser & Wirth Publishers presents Conversations in Contemporary Poetics, a monthly reading series and
  discussion group that explores the diverse ways in which poetry integrates with life, media, and politics.
  Organized by writer and curator Jeffrey Grunthaner, Conversations in Contemporary Poetics foregrounds what
  goes on behind the making of a poem. Rather than simply presenting poems as completed works (books, or
  finalized texts), the series acts like a studio visit, showcasing aspects of a poet’s creative practice that might
  otherwise go unnoticed.
  The forthcoming installment of the series, held on Tuesday 13 March 2018, will focus on the theme of Internet-
  based mythologies. Writing in response to the Internet, the poetry of the two featured readers—Bunny Rogers and  
  Precious Okoyomon—mingles elements of autobiography and fantasy. In this way, they offer compelling  
  approaches to (re)writing identity, history, and power.  
  Precious Okoyomon is a Brooklyn-based poet and artist. She is the author of ‘Ajebota’ (Bottlecap Press, 2016)  
  Her writing has been performed and exhibited at the Baltic Triennial in Lithuania, Exo Exo in Paris and MoMA  
  PS1 in New York. Her writing has been published in The Iowa Review, Fanzine, New York Tyrant and other  
  publications. She loves her sweet toy poodle rainbow and is a Leo that is very low key evil. She’s currently  
  working on a book or two.  
  Bunny Rogers is a New York–based poet and artist. Her 2017 solo show at the Whitney Museum, ‘Brig Und  
  Ladder,’ delved into the mediated violence of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, and other subjects. A  
  graduate of Parsons School of Design and the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, her books include ‘Cunny Poem:  
  Vol 1’ and ‘My Apologies Accepted.’  
  Jeffrey Grunthaner is a writer and curator based in New York. Their articles, reviews, poems and essays have  
  appeared via Drag City Books, Hyperallergic, BOMB, Archinect, Folder, artnet News, the 2016 Queens  
  International exhibition catalogue, Imperial Matters, and other venues. Their chapbook THE  
  TTTROUBLEWWITH SUUNDAAYS was published by Louffa Press.
