Free Verse: The Collaborative Artists’ Book



Many artworks in the exhibition Text/Messages: Books by Artists are the result of a creative alliance between an artist and a writer. Join us for an evening of verse and image with three noteworthy poets who have collaborated with visual artists on limited-edition books—Bill Berkson worked with artist Alex Katz; Vincent Katz joined forces with painter Francesco Clemente; and Lewis Warsh worked with video artist Julie Harrison. Each offers a brief, illustrated reading followed by a roundtable Q&A at which they’ll discuss the dynamics of feeding the written word into a collaborative, visual work.
