Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Ladan Osman: I hoped for something that was as messy and achy as I felt when arranging these odd news bits and memories. Artist Meghan Keane: This piece began with the color: I knew I wanted it to be black and white. Secondarily, I was thinking about the title and the idea of the TV: these musings informed the shape of the print and also the ghostly, ethereal quality.
Poet Ladan Osman has received fellowships from the Union League Civic & Arts Foundation, Fine Arts Work Center, Cave Canem Foundation, and the Michener Center for Writers. Artist Meghan Keane is a painter, printmaker, and the founding director of meghan.keane.studio.
