In this series of bilingual poetry readings, curated by Lila Zemborain, NYU Clinical Assistant Professor of Spanish and Portuguese, Latin American poets will read specially commissioned poems based on works of art featured in The Geometry of Hope. At each event, two poets will each read their respective poem and talk about its genesis and evolution, as well as its relationship with their previous work on ekphrastic poetry. Finally, they will lead a discussion about the links between verbal and visual culture.
