MoMA | 11 West 53rd Street
As part of Kenneth Goldsmith's Poet Laureate program, he invites renowned writers to choose works in MoMA's collection, develop a response, and then select a space in the Museum galleries where they will perform the resulting readings and texts on Wednesdays. On selected Fridays, Goldsmith himself will contribute readings in the galleries. Visitors can meet the writers directly in their selected gallery.
This program is a part of MoMA's Artists Experiment initiative.
Kenneth Goldsmith reads poet Blaise Cendrars's "The Prose of the Trans-Siberian and of Little Joan of France" in the Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 exhibition galleries, in front of the influential book illustrated by Sonia Delaunay. The display includes Delaunay's original painting for this book, Delaunay and Cendrars's working maquette, and a unique printed copy from the collection of Guillaume Apollinaire.
In conjunction with the exhibition Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925
