Poets House, New York, NY
For "Affective Intensities," Beijing-born experimental American poet Berssenbrugge (Hello, The Roses) reads new work and talks with UC Berkeley poetry scholar Charles Altieri (Wallace Stevens and the Demands of Modernity).
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.
