Poetry and Art in Conversation: A Virtual Writing Workshop
October 24, 2021 – Via Zoom
This program is inspired by Theorem, an exhibition by Antonia Contro with Elizabeth Bradfield currently on view in Barnsworth Gallery, located on the Farnsworth House property. Led by poet Elizabeth Bradfield, during this program, participants will read poems inspired by art–from Ranier Maria Rilke to Claudia Rankine–and, guided by prompts, experiment with writings of their own in response to visual art. By looking at visual art, new stories can be discovered, new conversations can be invited. No previous experience is required, and all are welcome to participate.
