Wave Poetry Weekend

Local publisher Wave Books, which previously launched the transcontinental Poetry Bus project, is now instigating a three-day residency at the Henry: Wave Poetry Weekend. New work and live readings are promised from over a dozen local and visiting poets (including Wave editor Joshua Beckman), with the James Turrell Skyspace used as a very cool performance venue. Film screenings will include vintage clips of John Ashbery, Denise Levertov, Frank O’Hara, and others. Books will be exhibited and sold at discount. And your weekend ticket—limited to 150 visitors—naturally includes the full roster of ongoing Henry exhibits, including Jasper Johns’ Light Bulb series, which might itself inspire a poem or two.
