DANTE AMONG FRIENDS with Robin Coste Lewis, Kevin Young, and Terrance McKnight


New York, NY,

On the occasion of the exhibition Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, MoMA published Robert Rauschenberg: Thirty-Four Illustrations for Dante's Inferno, featuring newly commissioned works by acclaimed poets Kevin Young and Robin Coste Lewis that respond to Rauschenberg's celebrated series and offer a personal vision of hell. On September 12, Young and Coste Lewis will read a selection of these works in an evening of poetry and music curated by WQXR's Terrance McKnight and performed by a host of extraordinary invited guests. An exploration of Rauschenberg's conversation with Dante across the centuries, this special evening celebrates creativity in dialogue among friends.

This program is made possible by The Friends of Education of The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA's Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.

Purchase of a ticket to this program includes free admission to the Museum through the run of Robert Rauschenberg: Among Friends, closing September 17.
