Like a Woman: Essays, Readings, Poems
Quinn Latimer’s arresting writings find expression in literature and theory as well as contemporary art and its history. Moving from Southern California to Europe, crossing geographies and genres, her texts record specters and realities of culture, migration and displacement, compounding the vagaries of rhetoric and poetics with those of personal history and criticism. Composed in the space between the page and live performance, Latimer’s recent essays and poems examine issues of genealogy and influence, the poverty and privilege of place, architecture’s relationship to language, and feminist economies of writing, reading and art making. Shifting between written language and live address, between the needs of the internal and the external voice, Like a Woman is refrain, litany and chorus. Latimer is a California-born poet and critic with writings and readings featured internationally including REDCAT, Los Angeles; Qalandiya International, Ramallah/Jerusalem, and Venice Architecture Biennale. Latimer is editor in chief of publications for dOCUMENTA (14) (2017).
