Art Across Disciplines: Lavinia Greenlaw and Kate Kilalea

Tuesday 28 May 2019 | Hauser & Wirth, London | 6.30pm | Free with RSVP

 

We are delighted to welcome leading poets and novelists Lavinia Greenlaw and Katharine Kilalea for a discussion, taking as its cue the exhibition László Moholy-Nagy, on writing across formal disciplines, the relationship between poetry and architecture, and responding to art through writing. The discussion will be moderated by Ben Eastham, associate editor at ARTREVIEW and founding editor of THE WHITE REVIEW.

 

Lavinia Greenlaw is a writer of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction known for investigating the shared imperatives of art and science. She lives in east London. Her first novel, MARY GEORGE OF ALLNORTHOVER, received France’s Prix du Premier Roman Étranger. Her two books of creative nonfiction are THE IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC TO GIRLS and QUESTIONS OF TRAVEL: WILLIAM MORRIS IN ICELAND. In 2016, she wrote and directed a short film, THE SEA IS AN EDGE AND AN ENDING, a study of the impact of dementia on our sense of time and place, drawing on Shakespeare’s TEMPEST. Her third novel, IN THE CITY OF LOVE’S SLEEP, was published in 2018. Her sixth poetry collection, THE BUILT MOMENT, was published in February 2019.

 

Katharine Kilalea grew up in South Africa and moved to the UK to study for an M.A. in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia. Her debut poetry collection, ONE EYE’D LEIGH (2009), was shortlisted for the Costa Poetry Award and longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize for writers under 39. She worked for many years in an architecture practice and is completing a PhD at the University of Sheffield on the experience of space in poetry. Her debut novel, OK, MR. FIELD, was published in June 2018 by Faber & Faber.
