Frey (The Grief Performance), Klassnik (The Moon's Jaw), Pope (Bone Matter), and St. John (I Wrote This Poem) travel to Atlanta from Portland, OR, Kirkland, WA, Brooklyn, NY, and Austin, TX, respectively, to read for the What's New in Poetry series.
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.
