As part of  Indelible ORIGINS | Place + People The BLACK Domestic Living & Dining Roomscapes, the GREYSTONE Collective presents Reading Time, personal readings by artist and writer Talia Kimberly Wright.

The BLACK domestic living room is a place family gathers for cultural enrichment through conversations and literature. Utilizing memory, word, and material object, Wright’s work aims to bridge the gap between the ancestral, traditional, and regenerated lives of African Americans who have been a part of the Great Migration. As a writer of poetry and prose, Wright is interested in the ways physicality aids us in tactile processing—creating objects using fiber, ceramics, or paint, to speak life into written word on the page. Storytelling provides physical examples, experiences, and textures that represent a journey—a way to process intergenerational movement, healing, and resolve.

The GREYSTONE Collective is an established home and studio for Black Queer + Trans Makers located in the heart of Bronzeville, Chicago’s landmark Black Metropolis. Indelible ORIGINS | Place + People is a four-part public engagement series that celebrates the identity and creative narratives of The GREYSTONE Collective’s artists, makers, and guest collaborators while creating ancestral ties to the neighborhood’s historical Black makers—Ida B. Wells, Richard Wright, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Margaret Burroughs.

Indelible ORIGINS | Place + People is supported by Hyde Park Art Center’s Artists Run Chicago Fund as part of Art Design Chicago.

Free and open to the public. Space is limited, RSVP is required.
