Blog snippet: “How many layers are possible in pushing the idea of the poem outwards from the conceptual act, to embed, and to break the space between what’s made and what’s revealed?”

More about Confessional:
Commissioned for CA+T’s virtual exhibition Queer Sites and Sounds, Jeffrey Augustine Songco’s Confessional is the third iteration in a series of photographic prints depicting his recurring “bag head” character. The piece joins the Catholic sacrament of reconciliation (confession) with the highly stylized soul-baring that is a staple of American reality television to provide a playful and provocative look at American identity and mores. Follow the link for more details on purchasing Confessional (http://bit.ly/OpcPmr).
New! Start your week off with Artist-in-Residence Ronaldo Wilson's new video blog entry Red. A deeply personal post, Wilson reflects on “process” as a window into one’s past, family, and identity. Watch the video above and read Wilson’s full blog post on CA+T’s Working Blog (http://bit.ly/18jkrNS).
Blog snippet: “I realized that as I revised the poem – in the space of the video – it became less about critique, and more about process: What gets mined? And who? And for whom? The poem and the piece revolved and revolves, at least in the ways that I am now reading it, as a means to figure out what I want to say about my relationship with my family, my past, and to my mother, in particular.”
Forthcoming book on CA+T’s “must read” shelf: THE IMPERIAL UNIVERSITY: ACADEMIC REPRESSION AND SCHOLARLY DISSENT edited by Piya Chatterjee and Sunaina Maira. Available for purchase this April!
