This event is a part of the “GIANT NIGHT: The Poetry Project at 50” platform series.
In honor of our 50th Anniversary, and as part of our fundraising efforts, the Project teamed up with The Song Cave to print a limited edition portfolio of prints from five artists whose work is important to us: Jonas Mekas, Simone Forti, Cecilia Vicuña, Mary Manning, and Amy Sillman. All of the images were drawn from the artist’s past bodies of work and were made between the 1960’s and last year! The portfolio, which will be available for sale, is an edition of 50 c-prints and inkjet prints, and costs $1,000 for the set or $250 per print. There will be short performances by the artists as well as a showing of Sillman’s “Draft of a Voice-Over for Split-Screen Video Loop” (Poem by Lisa Robertson drawing/animations by Sillman). The artists who love poets who will be performing this evening are: Jonas Mekas, Amy Sillman, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Sunita Prasad, Gordon Hall, and Sable Elyse Smith. Co-presented with The Song Cave. Reception to follow.
