- Poetry Reading and Spoken Word Performance by Jasmine L. Combs

In this responsive, collaborative living installation, a dialogue will evolve between the art forms of spoken word and visual media. First-year students from DCAD (Delaware College of Art and Design) will create works of art across a variety of mediums in response to the original poetry of spoken word artist Jasmine L. Combs exploring the theme of Object/Objectification. A video installation of the original poetry performance by Jasmine L. Combs will be on display in the Draper Gallery from January 16 - May 23, 2021. Selected student work will be exhibited at The Delaware Contemporary and at The Delaware College of Art and Design from March - May, 2021. 

Jasmine L. Combs is a writer, educator, and spoken word artist from Philadelphia. Her work has been published in various literary journals including Apiary Magazine, Vagabond City Lit, Vinyl Poetry, and Painted Bride Quarterly. She has competed in poetry slams both locally and nationally, winning the grand slam championship at Philly’s Grand Slam Finals 2015, College Union Poetry Slam Invitational (CUPSI) 2016, and was a semi-finalist at the 2015 National Poetry Slam. Jasmine’s work focuses on the personal as universal and the intersecting relationships between Blackness, womanhood, girlhood, mental illness, love, and home. She is the author of two poetry chapbooks, Universal Themes (2014) and This Drowning Was A Baptism (2019).
