Writer in Residence Texts
Letticia Cosbert Miller
Letticia Cosbert Miller is a Toronto-based writer, curator and researcher, and the current Director of Koffler.Digital at the Koffler Centre of the Arts. Letticia holds a B.A. in Classics from the University of Toronto, and an M.A. from Western University, where she specialized in erotic Latin poetry.
Letticia’s work as a writer is often in dialogue with historical, mythological, or philosophical tropes from the western classical tradition, interrogating its cultural proliferation. Her current research interests lie within the reception of Classics in Black diasporic contemporary culture, with particular regard for the application and evaluation of Classical ideas in visual and performance art, film, literature, and critical theory.
As Gallery 44’s 2020-2021 Writer-in-Residence, Cosbert Miller will be exploring the liberties and limitations of water as it is refracted through Black visual culture. Her residency will extend to a project in the Vitrines, where experiences of water will be explored through text and imagery.
