Ghost Fishing: An Evening of Eco-Justice Poetry

Please join the Gallatin Writing Program for an evening of readings to mark the closing of Kimmel Windows Gallery's exhibit featuring excerpts from Ghost Fishing: An Eco-Justice Poetry Anthology (University of Georgia Press, 2017). Anthology contributors Kimberly M. Blaeser, Ruth Irupé Sanabria, Tim Seibles, and contributing editor Melissa Tuckey will read. Gallatin student Ellie Bullard (MA ’20) and students from Tisch's "Language as Action" course, Laura Cabochan and Logan Stacer, will share poems written in response to the exhibit. Kathy Engel, anthology contributor and chair of the Department of Art & Public Policy at NYU Tisch will introduce the event.

Kimmel Windows Galleries will display excerpts of the newly released anthology Ghost Fishing: An Eco-Justice Poetry Anthology alongside living plants native to Puerto Rico for 24-hour public viewing from September 10, 2018 through November 1, 2018. Gallatin professor Mark Read created the art installations for the exhibit, and NYU students, staff, and community activists, will tend the plants and have written about the exhibit on a companion website. Support for this project has come from the Tisch School of the Arts Institute of Performing Arts, the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research, and the Global Research Initiatives of the Office of the Provost at NYU.
