An Duplan: On Sustaining Black Documentation

May 1, 2021 – Dec 31, 2021

An Duplan's research engages with multidisciplinary, Black avant-garde methodologies towards documentation, through the marriage of poetry and the visual arts, and explores what service poetics and art-making practices offer to liberation, memory, and grief.

Duplan is a trans* poet, curator, and artist. He is the author of the upcoming book I NEED MUSIC (Action Books, 2021), a book of essays, Blackspace: On the Poetics of an Afrofuture (Black Ocean, 2020), a full-length poetry collection, Take This Stallion (Brooklyn Arts Press, 2016), and a chapbook, Mount Carmel and the Blood of Parnassus (Monster House Press, 2017). As an independent curator, he has facilitated curatorial projects in St. Louis, Chicago, Boston, Santa Fe, and Reykjavík. In 2016, he founded the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, an artist residency program for artists of color, based at Iowa City’s artist-run organization Public Space One. He works as Program Manager at Recess, Brooklyn.


This Curatorial Research Fellowship was made possible by the Marian Goodman Gallery Initiative in honor of the late Okwui Enwezor, with additional support from Steve McQueen and members of ICI's Board of Trustees and Leadership Council.
