Beautiful Outsiders: Talk
Wednesday, December 14th, 6:00 PM
61 West Superior Street
Independent presses Black Sparrow, Burning Deck, and Fulcrum are noted for the diversity of their publication histories and their striking visual aesthetics. Poetry magazine senior editor Don Share discusses the importance of design in the identities of these presses. This exhibition runs until January 11, 2012.
This exhibition presents photographs and ephemera from the poet Jun Fujita (1888-1963). Fujita is an English-language tanka poet who published regularly in Poetry during the 1920s. The first Japanese-American photojournalist, he is responsible for the most famous photos of the Eastland disaster, the Chicago race riots of 1919, and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre, among others. This show will explore his lesser-known landscapes.
