Poet and Buddhist hospice worker Rogers (Instructions for the Transitional State) reads from her new collection, House of the Unexpected, with her husband, poet and musician Meltzer (Arrows).
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.
