Geoffrey Dorfman: Milton Resnick and the Specter of the Blank
Dec

4:00 PM16:00

Geoffrey Dorfman: Milton Resnick and the Specter of the Blank

Please join us for a lecture by Resnick biographer and Foundation trustee, Geoffrey Dorfman.

Dorfman will argue that Milton Resnick's work, by imbuing stringent abstraction with evocations of the sublime, constitutes an umbilical link between implacable Modernism and the nineteenth century Romantic spirit.

Geoffrey Dorfman’s book, Out Of the Picture: Milton Resnick and the New York School, was published in 2003. His writing has appeared in Artforum, Stagebill Magazine, and catalog essays for major galleries and museums. Dorfman has lectured on Resnick’s work extensively.

Jerome Rothenberg: Poetry Reading

Jerome Rothenberg: Poetry Reading

The Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation is pleased to present a reading by the poet Jerome Rothenberg. After an introduction by the poet Charles Bernstein, Rothenberg will read his own work, as well as a selection of poems by Milton Resnick. This is the first in a series of readings at the Foundation.

Jerome Rothenberg is an internationally celebrated poet, translator, anthologist, and performer with over ninety books of poetry and twelve assemblages of traditional and avant-garde poetry such as Technicians of the Sacred, Shaking the Pumpkin (traditional American Indian poetry), Exiled in the Word (a.k.a. A Big Jewish Book), and, with Pierre Joris and Jeffrey Robinson, Poems for the Millennium, volumes 1-3. He was a founding figure of ethnopoetics as a combination of poetic practice and theory, and he has been a longtime practitioner and theorist of poetry performance and text art, including collaborations with a number of active musicians and artists. His most recent big books are Eye of Witness: A Jerome Rothenberg Reader and Barbaric Vast & Wild: Outside & Subterranean Poetry from Origins to Present. A new book of poems, A Field on Mars: Poems 2000-2015, appeared last year in separate English and French editions, and he is currently assembling a transnational anthology of North and South American Poetry “from the Neolithic to the Present.”

Admission: $5
