Collective Tasks at MoMA
The second installment of Modern Poets: Collective Tasks is now here. A little about Collective Tasks #1:
In early 2006, poet Robert Fitterman invited several other poets and artists to participate in a collective project: one participant would offer the group a new task on the first day of each new month, to be completed within that month, and participants would respond to any or all of the tasks. Tasks have ranged from “Create a piece around your first purchase of the month of March” to simply “One act.” The group named itself Collective Task and published its task-prompted works in 2009.
If you’re in New York this Thursday, stop by MoMA for a presentation of “paintings, texts, sound pieces, and photographic works made in response to the tasks they have set for each other over the years” by a host of great poets.
