Reception follows | 6–7 PM

Thu, Mar 22, 2018 4 PM

Celebrate the launch of Sports, the latest issue of the artist-run publication INCITE: Journal of Experimental Media, with an evening of engaging dialogue on the intersection of athletics, politics, popular culture, and film.

Joining us for this lively conversation about the increasingly prominent ways sports are shaping cultural production and political dialogue are Columbus poet and critic Hanif Abdurraqib, author of They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us (2017); Ohio State Department of Human Sciences Professor Samuel Hodge, coeditor of Black Males and Intercollegiate Athletics: An Exploration of Problems and Solutions (2015); and visual artist, writer, and Columbus College of Art & Design Assistant Professor Carmen Winant, who was featured in the 2017 Wex exhibition Gray Matters and a track and field athlete while at UCLA. INCITE: Sports Editors Astria Suparak and Brett Kashmere kick off the program with an illustrated preview of their new publication.


This discussion is part of “A Non-Zero-Sum Game,” a series of launch events for INCITE’s new issue. An informal reception, open to the public, follows the conversation in the Wexner Center Store.
