Photo Prose—Your Mirror: Portraits from the ICP Collection


New York, NY,

Join us for an evening of dynamic poetry readings featuring work that responds directly to photographs in Your Mirror: Portraits from the ICP Collection. Participating poets were invited to choose an image or group of images in the exhibition to respond to through creation of a new work or interpretation of an original or historical piece. The image or images will be projected while the poets read, allowing the audience to dive deeper into the connections between the visual and the textual.

This event is co-curated with the Poetry Society of America. Participating poets include Angel Nafis, Matthea Harvey, Christopher Soto, Diane Exavier, Desiree C. Bailey, Robert Polito, Rowan Ricardo Phillips, and Paolo Javier. More readers to be announced.

At the conclusion of the program, we will open the mic up to the audience and invite rehearsed or spontaneous poetry or prose that responds to the images in Your Mirror.

Admission to reading is free and open to the public. Reservation is required.

For a public program combination ticket which grants $10 entry to the galleries starting at 4:30 PM to those attending the program are only available online when you register for the program.
