Uncontested Spaces: Guerilla Readings in the MoMA Galleries
As part of Kenneth Goldsmith's "Poet Laureate" program, he invites renowned writers to choose works in MoMA's collection, develop a response, and then select a space in the Museum galleries where they will perform the resulting readings and texts on Wednesdays. On selected Fridays, Goldsmith himself will contribute readings in the galleries. Visitors can meet the writers directly in their selected gallery.
