Have a Poet for Lunch: Brandon Brown
May 10, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm UTC+0Free – $14
Poet Brandon Brown presents work in dialogue with the exhibition “Show Me as I Want to Be Seen.” Many of the poets speaking in this bi-weekly series are rooted in the New Narrative tradition, an experimental writing movement and theory that evolved in San Francisco.
“Show Me as I Want to Be Seen” presents the work of groundbreaking French Jewish artist, Surrealist, and activist Claude Cahun (1894-1954) and her lifelong lover and collaborator Marcel Moore (1892-1972) in dialogue with ten contemporary artists to examine the complex and empowered representation of fluid identity.
Brandon Brown is the author of several books of poetry, most recently “The Four Seasons” (Wonder) and “The Good Life” (Big Lucks). He is a regular contributor to “Art In America,” and was the inaugural winner of the Toni Beauchamp Critical Art Writing Prize in 2018. Recent work has also appeared in “Frieze,” “Open Space,” “Berkeley Poetry Review,” and “Fanzine.” He is a co-editor at Krupskaya Books and edits the zine “Panda’s Friend.”
