Talk by John Yau at 6PM in Kent Hall
To mark the opening of Robert Grosvenor, noted critic and poet John Yau will give a lecture about Grosvenor’s work. In a recent article, Yau writes, “Grosvenor is that rare artist. He sees what is in front of our eyes, and gets us to look again… It isn’t about what you see but about seeing.” A prolific author, Yau has published over fifty books of poetry, fiction, and art criticism. Formerly the Arts Editor for the Brooklyn Rail, in 2012 Yau started the online magazine Hyperallergic Weekend with three other writers.
