James Albers is an emerging artist, curator, writer, organizer, and performer based on xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Sel̓íl̓witulh territories. Their practice often takes a collaborative and community oriented approach as they see this as a productive way to create new meaning from their lived experiences. James is concerned with exploring the queer potentials of revisionist histories and chooses to believe in the magic of fiction. Recently, James has been thinking through what truth a perfect lie may hold.

If a cover song re-interprets, rearranges, cites, edits, and pays homage to an original work performed by another artist, how can this form be applied to writing? In Covers, S F Ho, Chandra Melting Tallow, Whess Harman, Reed H Reed, Tiziana la Melia and James Albers embody the cover form in text and image to trace their references, relations, and obsessions.
