Ginsberg Across Media: Photography, Tape Recording, and Film
In conjunction with the exhibition Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg
Though Beat poetry famously emphasized the spontaneity and immediacy of the spoken word, in fact Allen Ginsberg was closely involved with the reproductive technologies of film, tape recording, and photography. Speakers Daniel Kane, Reader in English and American Literature, University of Sussex, and Reva Wolf, Professor of Art History, SUNY New Paltz, with moderator Lytle Shaw, Associate Professor of English, NYU, will address the implications of Ginsberg’s work across media.
Co-sponsored by NYU’s Department of English, Fales Library, and Grey Art Gallery.
