The Painter’s Poet
A Talk on Philip Guston by Clark Coolidge
Feb 22 @ 7pm
Experimental poet and jazz musician Clark Coolidge discusses Philip Guston’s passion for poetry and wordplay as evidenced by the painter’s extraordinary series of poem-pictures, which incorporate poems by William Corbett and Stanley Kunitz, among others, against the backdrop of their friendship, collaborations and Guston’s Collected Writings, Lectures, and Conversations (University of California, 2010), which Coolidge edited.
This program was organized by Kristan Kennedy, Visual Art Curator, PICA with Lisa Radon, editor of EIGHTS.
