Poetry Reading: Encounter With the Unexpected

Abstraction in the visual arts brings to mind the composition of shapes, colors, and line untethered to “real world” imagery. In poetry, we encounter the unexpected: language run amok, fractured syntax, innovation and experimentation, taking us outside the world of logic and everyday experience.

The reading is guest curated by Lisa Fishman, Poetry Program Director at Columbia College of Chicago. Fishman will be joined by Judith Goldman, Nicole Wilson, Kristin Ravel and Bernecia Blue.

Woman Made Gallery (WMG) supports, cultivates, and promotes the diverse contributions of women artists, performers, and writers who share an interest in the interaction of the arts in contemporary culture.

Recorded on Sunday, June 19, 2011 at the Woman Made Gallery.
