Poetry at Beinecke Library

Exhibition Update

Posted in Beinecke Collections by beineckepoetry on February 29, 2008

Due to ongoing construction at the Beinecke Library, the exhibition schedule for “Metaphor Taking Shape: Poetry Art and the Book” has changed: the exhibition will be on view through Saturday, March 15. The companion exhibition “The Publishers” Roundtable: Book Artists in Dialogue” will be on view at the Arts of the Book Collection at Sterling Memorial Library through March 31, 2008.

Metaphor Taking Shape: Poetry, Art, and the Book
The exhibition includes a broad display of books exploring the ways in which poets, publishers, artists, and printers have navigated the intersection of poetry and art in printed formats. The exhibition considers the ways poetry and book arts interact and connect, their shared context, and their potentially conflicting functions; materials on display explore questions of verbal and visual metaphor making, emphasizing the roles of creative and collaborative processes involved in uniting image, verse, and print.
