Readings include works written by Picasso's friends and acquaintances—such as Guillaume Apollinaire, André Salmon, and Gertrude Stein—who saw and responded to <i>Les Demoiselles,</i> as well as other literature from this cultural and artistic milieu. Following in the tradition of the MoMA Members Magazine, which commissioned poets to respond to works in the collection and then published the results, the Museum also offers contemporary poets the opportunity to write new poetry about art from all curatorial departments made one hundred years ago. Participants include Mary Jo Bang, poet and Associate Professor of English and Director of the Creative Writing Program, Washington University, St. Louis; Mary Ann Caws, author, translator and Distinguished Professor of English, French, Comparative Literature, and Film Studies, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York; Pierre Joris, poet, translator, essayist, and Professor of Poetry and Poetics, State University of New York, Albany; and Jerome Rothenberg poet and professor of visual arts and literature, University of California, San Diego.<br /><br /> This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Picasso's <i>Demoiselles d'Avignon</i> at 100.</p> </div> <form action="./" class="share"> <a href="#" class="selected" rel="permalink"><small>Permalink</small></a> <a href="#" rel="embed"><small>Embed</small></a> <a href="/momaorg/shared/audio_file/audio_file/199/DemoisellesPoetry_052307.mp3" class="download"><small>Download MP3</small></a> <label id="embed-toggle"> <input type="checkbox" name="embed_toggle" /> <small>Old embed code</small> </label> <br class="clear" /> <input type="text" name="permalink" value="http://www.moma.org/explore/multimedia/audios/13/198" id="permalink" class="selected copy-paste" /> <input type="text" name="embed" value="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/audios/embed/13/198&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " data-embed="&lt;object width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;/embed/audios/embed/13/198&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;wMode&quot; value=&quot;opaque&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;/embed/audios/embed/13/198&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; wmode=&quot;opaque&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;" data-iframe="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/audios/embed/13/198&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " id="embed" class="copy-paste" /> </form> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <div id="playlist" class="JS_MediaPlaylist"> <div class="playlist-tabs"> <a href="#playlist" class="first selected" rel="tab-playlist">Playlist</a> <br class="clear" /> </div> <div id="tab-playlist" class="tab selected"> <h3>Poetry and Performance (20)</h3> <div class="bottom-border"></div> <ol class="scrollable" > <li> <a href="/explore/multimedia/audios/13/253" class="media" rel="/explore/multimedia/audios/full/13/253.xml?language="> <span class="image"> <img alt="Timothy Hursley " src="/images/dynamic_content/media_thumb/27572.jpg?1404314121" /> </span> <span class="info"> <h4>The Civilians in Performance </h4> </span> <br class="clear" /> </a> </li> <li> <a href="/explore/multimedia/audios/13/3054" class="media" rel="/explore/multimedia/audios/full/13/3054.xml?language="> <span class="image"> <img alt="Pedro da Silva playing Portuguese guitar.
