5/9: Cassandra Gillig, LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs, Isaac Pool

Cassandra Gillig is neither Hannah Weiner (whose work can be read online at http://epc.buffalo.edu/authors/weiner/) nor Wanda Coleman (whose work can be heard online at http://writing.upenn.edu/pennsound/x/Coleman-Wanda.php).

LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs works with words, voice, video and beads. She is the author of TwERK (Belladonna, 2013), as well as the album Television. LaTasha has received scholarships, residencies, and fellowships from Cave Canem, Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, VCCA, The Laundromat Project, The Jerome Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, the Eben Demarest Trust, and Millay Colony. As an independent curator and artistic director, she has directed literary/music events at Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Symphony Space, Bam Café, The Schomburg Research Center for Black Culture, Dixon Place, El Museo del Barrio, The David Rubenstein Atrium. A native of Harlem, LaTasha and writer Greg Tate are the founders and editors of yoYO/SO4 Magazine.

Isaac Pool is an artist and poet splitting time between New York and Detroit. He holds an MFA in Fine Arts from Parsons The New School for Design (2013) and a BFA in Electronic Arts from Wayne State University (2011). Pool's practice includes curatorial projects - recently working with the Next Time and Hobby Group platforms - and collaborative performance in addition to his studio practice. His work with photography, video, objects and text engage with a perverse sense of realism, straddling between fictional narrative and material investment. Recent exhibitions include "A Alternatives" at What Pipeline, Detroit and "The Intelligence of Things" at The Kitchen, NYC. Isaac's first publication, "Alien She" is now available on Klaus ebooks.
