Event description

Description

Join award-winning Mumbai-based poet, critic, and curator Ranjit Hoskote and director of Liverpool Biennial Sally Tallant at The Bluecoat for an evening of discussion and poetry readings. Drawing on their impressive range of global expertise in programming arts festivals, Tallant and Hoskote will be thinking about Biennials worldwide and the ways in which international arts festivals and the literary arts can enter into creative and critical dialogue with each other.

Ranjit Hoskote has published five collections of poetry, including Central Time (2014) and Zones of Assault (1991). His poems are committed to exploring the possibilities of the image and make imaginative use of landscape and artistic allusion. As well as creative writing, Hoskote has also curated an impressive range of exhibitions on contemporary Indian and international art. In 2011, he was invited to act as curator of the first-ever professionally curated national pavilion of India at the Venice Biennale. Between 1988 and 1999 Hoskote was the principal art critic for The Times of India. Hoskote’s awards include the 1996 Sanskriti Award for Literature and First Prize in the British Council/Poetry Society All-India Poetry Competition, 1997.

Sally Tallant has delivered large-scale exhibitions and commissions. From 2001–11 she was Head of Programmes at the Serpentine Gallery, London where she was responsible for the development and delivery of an integrated programme of Exhibitions, Architecture, Education and Public Programmes. She has curated exhibitions in a wide range of contexts including the Hayward Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Hospitals, Schools as well as public commissions. She has also curated performances, sound events, film programmes and conferences including initiating the Park Nights series in the Serpentine Gallery Pavilions and co-curating the Serpentine Gallery Marathon series with Hans Ulrich Obrist.
