Gysin’s Ghost: Poetry Marathon at The New Museum
The New Museum will be hosting a big poetry “get-together” in a marathon tribute to Brion Gysin (in connection with their current exhibit, Brion Gysin: Dream Machine) on Saturday in their panoramic Sky Room. Three generations of poets will participate in a daylong poetry reading. They write: 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. FREE (with admission) // 1pm // 235 Bowery.
