Overview


Poetry. African American Studies. "In SURFACE TO AIR, RESIDUALS OF BASQUIAT, Keith Jones approaches the unaccountable in small measures that draw us down to a whole other kind of immensity. There's lots of room and lots of company in these spacious concentrations; we can read and write in the midst and all over the edge of their dense, open tuning. Sonorous numbers, free market numerators, undercommon denominators, a ruptural totality of images recomposed as geography, another map of the world 'Segued into / Broken sorts.' Jones keeps making sure we know that in the relay between surface and air, ground and song, artists make radical and precise mathematics, deep and unruly history. Like Basquiat, Jones is right there with the ones who do more than we can ask."—Fred Moten
