About Rosamond S. King

Writer, performer, and artist Rosamond S. King is the author of poetry collections All the Rage and the Lambda Award-winning Rock | Salt | Stone. She draws on reality to create non-literal, culturally and politically engaged interpretations of African diaspora experiences. King’s performances have been curated into venues around the world, including Gibney, the New York Metropolitan Museum, the VIVA! and Encuentro Festivals, Dixon Place, Bocas LitFest, and the African Performance Art Biennial. King is also the author of Island Bodies: Transgressive Sexualities in the Caribbean Imagination, winner of the Caribbean Studies Association best book award. The goal of all of her work is to make people feel, wonder, and think, not necessarily in that order. She is associate professor at Brooklyn College (CUNY), and creative editor of sx salon.

Living Gallery, curated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa and normally produced in the Gibney Gallery, presents live performance of storytelling, monologues, spoken word, stand-up, or creative talks. Each performance – free and open to the public – runs 30-45 minutes, traditionally scheduled within the hour before a dance concert presented in Gibney’s Theater. Due to COVID-19, Living Galleries for the fall season will happen on Zoom.

All Winter & Spring 2021 Season events will be held online via Zoom. Gibney’s Box Office can be reached via email. For ticketing inquiries or requests, please email Marketing & Audience Services Manager, Kimiko Tanabe, at
