Description:

All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop in conversation with two Block Museum of Art exhibitions: Caravans of Gold, Fragments in Time and Isaac Julien’s groundbreaking 2007 video installation on histories of African migration, The Leopard. Together, we will read and discuss the poetry of migration, fragmentation, and translation. In response to the exhibitions, participants will compose original poems exploring the experience of migration and the legacies various migrations have left behind. Maggie Queeney of The Poetry Foundation will
lead the session. Space is limited. Registration is required.


Presented by The Block Museum in partnership with The Poetry Foundation.
