    As a complement to Let me consider it from here, three poets will read from new work, written for the occasion and for the forthcoming publication. Embodying the concerns of the exhibition in their own ways, their poems offer rich viewpoints on how a private or personal space can open on to larger social and political realities.

    The three authors will come together in discussion the following afternoon. Read more.

    Geoffrey G. O’Brien is the author of several acclaimed collections including Experience in Groups (2018); Simone White received the prestigious Whiting Award for Of Being Dispersed (2016); and Lynn Xu’s first book Debts & Lessons (2013) was a finalist for the L.A. Times Book Prize.

    Co-presented with Poem Present/Program for Poetry and Poetics at the University of Chicago.
