As a complement to the Renaissance Society’s exhibition Let me consider it from here (Nov 17, 2018-Jan 27, 2019), poets Geoffrey G. O’Brien, Simone White, and Lynn Xu will read from new work, written for the occasion. Embodying the concerns of the exhibition in their own ways, their poems offer rich viewpoints on how a private or personal space can open on to larger social and political realities.
This event also marks the launch of the catalogue for Let me consider it from here, featuring these new poems alongside documentation from the gallery presentation.
