As a culmination of their installations in Never Apart’s Upper Galleries B and C, Alisha Mascarenhas and Jordan Brown will present an emergent textual performance addressing the inextricability of the poem and the socio-political systems in which it is encountered. Their performance will be followed by a Clap Back session on healing through individual/collective art practice.

The Clap Back is a space to informally discuss everything from pop culture phenomena to divisive political issues. Join us + share your insights on art, community, and wellness.

CELLS

From July to August 2017, Jordan Brown and Alisha Mascarenhas will inhabit Never Apart’s Galleries B and C on a weekly basis for a durational performance of live writing. Their work will address the inextricability of the poem and the socio-political systems in which it is encountered. The outcome is a living installation that explores the healing potentials of an ecological writing praxis. The rooms will become inclusive and connective environments to strengthen diasporic encounters: incubation cells for dialogue, disruption and generative silence.

Over time, they will materialize a work of poetic ecology composed of text, video, light, and objects that grows out of its physical and ideological surroundings. The rooms will be imbued with the cumulative materials of the poetic process.

Weekly occupations will occur between the hours of 12-5pm on Saturdays, during the opening hours of the Never Apart gallery space. During this time, the poets will work alone, together, or with invited guests to develop the works. Their process will respond to the space and the current exhibition(s).
