June – August 2017
As part of the the multi-venue exhibition Ugo Rondinone: I ❤ John Giorno, Artists Space has organized a series of programs that, taking cue from the broad influence of John Giorno’s work, give focus to the queer overlap of reading and performance in North American poetry. The series features an expansive group of artists and poets, placing those who came of age as peers of Giorno in the influential East Village poetry scene alongside figures who trace numerous other positions within today’s extended poetic landscape. Readings in the series will be recorded, with videos published on this page throughout the summer, in tribute to Giorno’s inventive approach to the distribution and publication of the written and spoken word.
