Live Tweet Reading of Glenn Ligon's text for Parkett “Kelley Walker's Negro Problem”
PARMER 464 Quincy Street, Brooklyn NY 11221 & {Poem 88} 1100 Howell Mill Rd.#3A04 Atlanta GA 30318

Live tweet reading of Glenn Ligon’s text for Parkett “Kelley Walker's Negro Problem” in Parkett, Vol. 87, 2010. This is the second of four reading groups that will draw from Nikita Gale’s selection of texts chosen to contextualize her practice and exhibition #parmograph at PARMER on view April 19 – June 8, 2014. The reading groups will be co-hosted by PARMER in Brooklyn and spaces throughout Atlanta, Georgia, where Gale is currently based. The live tweet exchange between the concurrently held reading groups—in Atlanta and Brooklyn—offers a platform to record the dialog between the these communities and the discourse building around the work and text.

NIkita Gale hosted the {Poem 88} reading group in Atlanta at the gallery and the Brooklyn group took place at PARMER in Bedford Stuyvesant.
