Defiant Writing: Banu Cennetoğlu and Treasure Shields Redmond

Banu Cennetoğlu is a cross-disciplinary artist whose practice incorporates methods of collecting and archiving, and inquires into the politics of the production, classification, and distribution of knowledge. She is the founder of BAS, an artist-run space in Istanbul dedicated to artists’ books and printed matter.

Treasure Shields Redmond is a poet, performer, and educator. Her work is featured in Bum Rush the Page: A Def Poetry Jam, Breaking Ground: A Reader Celebrating Cane Canem’s First Decade, and in journals that include Obsidian and The African American Review.

Radio Resistance assembles the voices of intersecting local and global agents of change. Artists featured in the exhibition are paired with figures from the past, present, and future of St. Louis, coming together to transmit messages of dissent. A selection from their discussion can be found on St. Louis on the Air, the noontime talk program hosted by Sarah Fenske on St. Louis Public Radio, with the full episode also available in a listening station at CAM, and on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher.

Radio Resistance is co-produced by Michelle Dezember, Director of Learning and Engagement, Wassan Al-Khudhairi, Chief Curator, and Misa Jeffereis, Assistant Curator. Sound design and editing by Sean Pierce.
