Valentine’s Day Poetry Reading With Joan Retallack | Susan Inglett Gallery
Fri., Feb. 14, 2020 at 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
On 14 February 2020 (Valentine’s Day), Joan Retallack will be reading bracingly improbable love poems at 5:30 PM in the Gallery. The event is in conjunction with our exhibition, Beverly Semmes: Red, opening 30 January.
JOAN RETALLACK is a poet with a background in philosophy and visual arts. Her numerous volumes of poetry include Errata 5uite (Edge Books) chosen by Robert Creeley for a Columbia Book Award; AFTERRIMAGES (Wesleyan); How To Do Things With Words (Sun & Moon Classics); Procedural Elegies /Western Civ Cont’d/ (Roof)—an Artforum best book of 2010. Her friendship with John Cage led to Musicage (Wesleyan), a volume of their conversations about Cage’s compositional poetics. Retallack’s The Poethical Wager (California) is a sequence of experimental essays. Litmus Press published The Supposium: Thought Experiments and Poethical Play in Difficult Times, edited by Retallack as documentation and continuation of a MoMA event in collaboration with Adam Pendleton. The book was launched at The Kitchen in a multimedia event: “THE SUPPOSIUM, A Poethical Wager,” 2018. BOSCH’D: Fables, Moral Tales & Other Awkward Constructions is forthcoming from Litmus this spring.
