Artist interview series

Is an interview series featuring Trinidad artists. Over the coming weeks, we'll feature poets, painters, writers, musicians, actors and others. They'll tell us about themselves in questionnaires that follow a standard template of: WHO? WHAT? WHEN+WHERE? WHY? The aim is to get them to literally do all the talking and to capture them at a moment in their lives.

The series, which will come out at random intervals, began October 25, 2009, with the brilliant Trinidadian poet Vahni Capildeo. Capildeo's book, the critically acclaimed Undraining Sea, was launched that month in London.
