Scope and Contents

This exhibition, curated by Julien Blaine, comprised statements and representative works from several international visual poets that memorialized five "ambassadors" of poetry who died in the past five years. The "ambassadors" were Franco Beltrametti, Julio Campal, Guillermo Deisler, Mathias Goeritz, amd Adriano Spatola. The statements were responses to the questions: What do you speak about in your work? Why the world? What about international exchange? Each poet also submitted an autobiography that was reprinted. Page IX depicts a photographic reproduction of a sculpture, "A" by Bartolome Ferrando that is held by the Sackner Archive. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
