The exhibition Out of Time: A Contemporary View considers notions of temporality and reconstructions of time through memory, fantasy, dreams, and history in a variety of media. The increasing prevalence of technology, whether as an artist’s medium or as visual stimulation in mass culture, changes the way we experience, record, and perceive time. On the occasion of this exhibition, MoMA asked poets to explore how technology informs the language and rhythms of poetry. Caroline Bergvall, poet, and Co-Chair, Writing MFA, Milton Avery School for the Arts, Bard College; Greta Byrum, poet and sound artist; Robert Fitterman, poet; Kenneth Goldsmith, poet, Professor, Creative Writing Program, The University of Pennsylvania, and founding editor of ubuweb.com read works of their own and of others. This program is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art and ubuweb.com.
