This Friday at SPT: Dodie Bellamy & Bhanu Kapil

Bhanu Kapil & Dodie Bellamy

Friday, February 15, 7:30 p.m.

Bhanu Kapil writes at the intersection of poetry, prose, non-fiction and a kind of irreversible yet mutable “document.” Her works include The Vertical Interrogation of Strangers (Kelsey Street Press, 2001), Incubation: a space for monsters (Leon Works, 2006), and Humanimal, a project for future children (forthcoming from Kelsey Street Press). Nationally, she has given readings of her work and presented lectures/panel talks on monsters, cyborgs, architecture, and hybridity; most recently as part of a CalArts conference on experimental writing at the LAMoca. She teaches at Naropa University.

Dodie Bellamy's collection, Academonia, was published by Krupskaya in 2006. Other books include Pink Steam and The Letters of Mina Harker. Her book Cunt-Ups won the 2002 Firecracker Alternative Book Award for poetry. In January, 2006, she curated an installation of Kathy Acker's clothing for White Columns, New York's oldest alternative art space.

Unless otherwise noted, events are $5-10 sliding scale
and begin at 7:30 PM in Timken Lecture Hall,
at the California College of the Arts,
1111--8th Street, San Francisco.
