Artists on Artists: Ekphrastic Poetry Reading

  • The Studio Museum in Harlem 144 West 125th Street New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

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 the final exhibition season in the current building of The Studio Museum in Harlem.
