More Photos from the Beacon Talk

Here are a few more photos of Chris Stackhouse and me at the talk in Beacon, New York, so here are some from artist Karlos Carcamo, one of the co-founders and proprietors of the talk's sponsor, the Go North Gallery. (Thanks, Karlos!)

Me speaking about Stephane Mallarmé's and Edouard Manet's L'après-midi d'un faune (1876-1877), one of the earliest and best known experimental art-text collaborations

Here I'm puzzling over the gestural economy and influence of Jackson Pollock's The Deep

Chris talking about a Richter drawing in paint

And more about Richter

Here he's speaking about another Richter painting that functions like a drawing

Here we're conferring before we read "Geodesy," one of the "simultaneous" poems, which one of the audience members suggested was like pleasant "feedback"

  1. Wow, I really did miss out! This sounds like a wonderful event. Sounds like Karlos Carcamo and the other Go North Gallery folks have a curatorial vision worth looking out for. Funny, this puts me in mind of a quote from Q-Tip in the recent Time article, "Hip-hop's Down Beat" by Ta-Nehisi Coates (wow, I remember the days when you'd never see a byline that ethnic-sounding in Time). Q-Tip comments: "When I first signed to Tommy Boy, [the A&R person] would take us to different shows and to art museums...There was real mentorship. Today that's largely absent, and we see the results in the music and in the aesthetic." Yeah, even the most gifted budding organic intellectual needs some mentorship...and from other art/culture heads of color, too. I hope you'all do it again.
