Her recent poetry scores multilingualism and contemporary forms of keening. Current activities include workshops with the Radical Translation project at King’s College London.

Her own work has been published by gammm Press, Tamaast, Litmus Press, Firmament and Asymptote among others.

Montse Gallego is a multidisciplinary artist and founder of the Hundred Years Gallery. She began writing short stories in the early eighties and her poetry has been developed in her notebooks since the nineties, both as silent but permanent supporters of her foremost painting practice. In 2012 she started an experimental project based on automatic poems which was later recorded and edited by herself as a voice-sound-collage series titled Las Naves de Antofagasta. Her first ever selection of poems in the form of a book, Al Final del Tiempo, was finished in Paris in January 2020, and printed and hand bound by herself during the first months of the Covid19 plague.
