Poets Embodying Abstraction

Woman Made Gallery Poetry Reading Series
recorded Sunday, 2011-06-19

event profile:
How does it work? Five different poets, five different ways, varying from poem to poem and poet to poet. Abstraction can happen as a phenomenon of sound and voice (or multiple sounds, multiple voices) and/or as an arrangement of letters and words on the page; it can happen via the workings or un-workings of form or take shape as an idea. Each act of making can generate abstraction as experience, as mode of consciousness or, more accurately, both. Our featured poets will share work reflective of different lineages and traditions and the many routes for poetry to take through, to, or away from (a way from) abstraction.
