@ The Broad

USC Poetry Reading | Jasper Johns: A Tour of the Imagination


7:30 p.m.

Organized by award-winning poet Carol Muske-Dukes, professor of English at the University of Southern California, this special one-night public reading is The Broad's contribution to National Poetry Month. As part of a USC graduate course entitled “A Tour of the Imagination,” each of Muske-Dukes' current PhD students will read poetry that they have crafted. The reading will be the consummation of an ongoing collaborative process between image and word; these poets will have earlier chosen one work of art from Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’, then spent hours “in conversation” with their artwork selection to compose their poems.

This event is sold out.
