Lecture: On Poet/Painter Collaborations
Co-sponsored by Department of English, MFA Creative Writing

Distinguished poet and critic John Yau discusses the history of poet-painter collaborations, examining how various artists and friends—including Frank O’Hara, John Ashbery, Bill Berkson, Norman Bluhm, Larry Rivers, Philip Guston, and others—have co-authored unique improvisational works on paper. A short reading of Yau’s poems will follow his talk, and a number of his books will be available for purchase.

John Yau is the author of thirteen books of poetry, including Radiant Silhouette: New & Selected Work 1974-1988 (1989), Borrowed Love Poems (2002), and, most recently, Bijoux in the Dark (2018). He has also published monographs and books of criticism, including A Thing Among Things: The Art of Jasper Johns (2008); Catherine Murphy (2016); Thomas Nozkowski (2017); and The Wild Children of William Blake (2017). Yau is Professor of Critical Studies at Mason Gross School of the Arts (Rutgers University) and is a frequent contributor to the online journal Hyperallergic.
