Claire Taylor will be appearing tomorrow on a Resonance FM radio programme, in their ‘Making Conversations’ series. Resonance FM is an arts radio project broadcasting to the South Bank and Bankside in London.
Broadcast at 4pm, the programme focuses on the topic of ‘words: concrete poetry dialogues’, and brings together Claire along with scholar Stephen Bann, Hayle Gadhela of the Embassy of Brazil in London, and curator Bronac Ferran. The programme, which will discuss concrete poetry and its prefiguring of contemporary digital innovation, is a build-up to the exhibition, A Token of Concrete Affection, which will run from 20 November to 18 December. Sponsored by the Embassy of Brazil, the exhibition is curated by Bronac Ferran, and features a selection of works and letters exchanged between Stephen Bann and the leading Brazilian concrete poets Haroldo de Campos, Augusto de Campos, Julio Plaza, Edgard Braga, Décio Pignatari and Pedro Xisto.
If you miss the programme when it comes out live, you can listen to it afterwards on the Resonance FM mixcloud site.
