Each year the Whitechapel Gallery invites a writer to curate a programme of events, considering writing as art and writing as a lens through which to experience art - unfolding as a platform for experimentation and discussion.
Previous Writers in Residence Maria Fusco and Sally O’Reilly present new projects from 19 April–10 June. Fusco interrogates how and where writing is heard with a new sound work featuring extracts from her novel Sailor, which is narrated by a vervet monkey in Belfast vernacular. O’Reilly’s video essays meanwhile, examine writerly modes and methods; she will also be faxing the gallery space with regular updates and rewrites of Crude, a novel in progress about public speaking, flirting and oil.
