In Clipping Signal: An Exhibition of Collages by Poets

By Harriet Staff


Lest you think the only thing poets are good for is making poems, the good folks at Spudnik Press’s Annex are cutting and pasting together a show of collages by poets—and it’s a damn fine list of poets to boot! All about it:

In Clipping Signal is an exhibition of new and selected works by poets involved in the dual practices of writing and making visual collage. The show explores the connections between the practice of collage and its role in the formal, semantic and imaginative landscapes of contemporary poetic practice. The materials in the exhibition will consist of visual works as well as a publication consisting of images and writings exploring the intersections of poetry and visual art. In Clipping Signal includes works by local and national artists including Rosmarie Waldrop, Keith Waldrop, Gustave Morin, Michael Carr, Brandon Downing, Jen Bervin, Eric Unger, Norma Cole, Bailey Romaine, David Baptiste Chirot, Lewis Freedman, Barrett Gordon, Tom Ahern, Krista Franklin, Brett Brady and Kyle Schlesinger.

The opening reception is a little ways off, but here are details so you can save the date:

Saturday, May 17, 2014

The exhibition is curated by Luke Daly of Spudnik Press Cooperative and April Sheridan of Columbia College’s Center for Book and Paper Arts. And brought to you with support by our very own Poetry magazine. Thanks, y’all!
