For Fiction of Now, WordXWord has challenged poets - across multiple generations - to create original work to be presented in the context of the Berkshire Museum's Morgan Bulkeley: Nature Culture Clash, a career retrospective of the artist's work, which - in his own words - is intended to "make people think of the fragility in which we exist.”
MCLA Gallery 51, 51 Main Street, North Adams, MA
For Politics of Identity / Poetry of Inclusion & Exclusion - Poets are invited to zoom in or zoom out; re aim their telescope or grab a magnifying glass; to build a fence, or tear one down; to examine the politics of identity from the personal, social, or cultural perspective. Who belongs? Who gets to decide?
