The Poetry Flash Reading Series presents Academy of American Poets program coordinator Dimitrov (Begging for It) and writer and artist Lentine (Poses: An Essay Drawn from the Model).
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.
