Last Look, Adult Programs, Artist Talks

Poets Joshua Bennett, Desiree Bailey, Marwa Helal, Chanice Hughes-Greenberg, Aracelis Girmay, and Nkosi Nkululeko will activate and respond to Fictions through a reading of ekphrastic texts in the galleries! Each poet will share work they have written in response to specific works on view in the exhibition, and highlight the creative, interdisciplinary relationship between contemporary poetry and visual art. This program also highlights the importance of interdisciplinary relationships amongst artists seeking to expand linguistic, social and historical boundaries.

This event is a part of Last Look, a four-day celebration of art and artists from our final exhibition season in our current building.
