Gathering #11 - 7 May 2019
An intensive Art, Literature, Philosophy Seminar with transdisciplinary scholar-writer Kyoo Lee, Professor of Philosophy and Gender Studies at CUNY.
Queer Quests in Questions, Qrious Queeries, are some of the hallmarks of the “philopoetics” of reading/writing/thinking pioneered by Q aka Kyoo Lee, a transdisciplinary philosopher, writer, and critic, who often works in transit. This seminar co-explores such rigorously auto-generative, alter-native models of experimental composition by engaging Q in a Quayside conversation on the Art, Philosophy, Literature of Q-gardening.
