Sunday, May 16, 2010, 3:00 PM

Poet, theorist, and literary scholar Charles Bernstein joins artist and writer Josef Strau for an afternoon reading that delves into the restless framing and re-framing of art, language, and life in New York, Berlin, and various elsewheres. Charles Bernstein is the author of more than forty books, including All the Whiskey in Heaven: Selected Poems (2010), published by Farrar, Straus, Giroux. Artist and writer Josef Strau has experimented with the roles of curator, musician and gallerist, co-founding the legendary Friesenwall 120 in Cologne, Germany, and operating Galerie Meerrettich (2002-2007) in Berlin until relocating to New York.

Organized and introduced by Jay Sanders.
