Join us for a special talk from writer Will Harris, author of Mixed-Race Superman

Harris will read from Mixed-Race Superman, which considers how two very different men – Barack Obama and Keanu Reeves – have helped transform the perception of mixed-race identity. Considering his own Anglo-Indonesian heritage, Harris will further explore this contested identity and how it has been used and misused across literature, art and film. He will also read from his new poetry collection RENDANG.

This talk coincides with our exhibition Theaster Gates: Amalgam.


Will Harris is a poet and writer from London. He was shortlisted for the 2018 Forward Prize for Best Single Poem and won a Poetry Fellowship from the Arts Foundation in 2019. His poems have appeared in the Guardian, Granta and the London Review of Books. His first full-length poetry collection RENDANG was released in February 2020.
