Please join us at the AGO tonight, Wednesday April 21, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm in celebration of International Poetry Month. Toronto poet laureate Dionne Brand invites authors George Eliot Clarke, Lynne Crosbie, Daniel David Moses and Souvankham Thamavongsa, to join her in reading poems inspired by pieces from the AGO’s collection.
Working from the concept of ekphrasis, one art form paying homage to another, poet Maureen Hynes created and presents a new poem in response to an artwork by Rebecca Belmore from the AGO’s collection.
Recorded: September 29, 2009 @ Walker Court, Art Gallery of Ontario
