Bowery Poetry opened as The Bowery Poetry Club at 308 Bowery (down the street from John Giorno's famous loft and studio) in 2002, and remains at this address today. Host to the influential Segue Series, New York's fabled accelerator of avant-garde poetics, in the early 2000s, Bowery Poetry has welcomed hundreds of poets, local and international, to its stage, and has become one of Manhattan's most vital homes for slam, performance poetry, hip-hop, experimental theater, burlesque and spoken word.
Bowery Poetry ❤ John Giorno is one in a series of programs taking place at Artists Space and around New York City as part of the multi-venue exhibition Ugo Rondinone: I ❤ John Giorno. The freshest of downtown voices will mix alongside legends who have worked with Giorno in an old school poetry jam—a late summer celebration of the poet who broke all of the rules.
