Gysin’s Ghost: Poetry Marathon
Free with Museum Admission
Three generations of poets participate in a daylong poetry reading on the New Museum’s seventh floor. Invited are poets that knew Gysin personally, and who participated in the community surrounding concrete and sound poetry; poets that have acknowledged Gysin’s influence; and those who engage in his life’s work of pushing the boundaries of writing, with the goal of tangling and overlapping these three groups to create a dynamic tribute to Gysin. Participating poets include John Giorno, Kenneth Goldsmith, Tim Griffin, Mónica de la Torre, Bernadette Mayer, Anne Waldman, Aaron Dilloway, and Christian Bok.
