Nomadic Press poets reflect on the themes of our current exhibitions, After the Thrill is Gone: Fashion, Politics and Culture in Contemporary South African Art and Digitalia: Art & The Economy of Ideas, by reading and discussing original work in the galleries among the pieces that inspired them.

These readings and discussions take place in the galleries for 30 minutes each.  The series culminates with an evening wine and performance by the participating poets on August 16.

Founded by J.K. Fowler in 2011, Nomadic Press lifts the voices of emerging and established writers and artists. Through publications (including translations) and performances, Nomadic Press aims to build community among artists across disciplines.

Director, poet, and playwright Dr. Ayodele Nzinga received an MFA in Writing and Conciseness and a PhD in Transformative Education. One of Theater Bay Area’s 40 faces of Theater, Nzinga is an Alameda County Arts Leadership awardee, Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame member, and is the current Helen Crocker Russell awardee.
