Painting That Speaks: On Poetry

  • This event has passed.

As Simonides of Ceos said and Plutarch noted in De gloria Atheniensium, “Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks.” Three anticipated collections, The Voyage of the Sable Venus by Robin Coste LewisHeaven by Rowan Ricardo Phillips, and One Morning— by Rebecca Wolff, offer many answers or none at all on art, pop and high culture, beauty, the divine, and the every day. These three acclaimed authors discuss their new books, moderated by Molly Rose Quinn (Housing Works Bookstore Cafe).
