On Tuesday, October 18, The Kitchen will present a special reading of Poems, the first book of poems by choreographer and filmmaker Yvonne Rainer, who will read the selections herself. Published by artist Paul Chan's Badlands Unlimited, the book is comprised of works that have never been published, most written in the late 1990s. Full of wit and candor, Poems offers a window into the life and mind of one of America's greatest living artists.
The reading will be followed by a conversation between Rainer and The Kitchen's Executive Director and Chief Curator Tim Griffin, who penned an introduction to the volume.
After the reading, Rainer will remain to sign copies of Poems, which will be available for purchase.
Tuesday, October 18, 7:30pm -- Free admission
