When at or in the area of POETS HOUSE, don’t miss going in & checking out this amazing exhibition of manuscripts, letters, etc. (Duncan, Creeley, Tarn, Ashbery and so on…) presented in the context of INSOLENT GRACE:
On view during library hours through Saturday, June 18
This exhibition unveils treasures from the archive of Alberto de Lacerda (1928–2007), one of Portugal’s most admired poets, who spent the majority of his adult life in England and the United States. On display are the fruits of his friendships with world-renowned writers and artists: letters to de Lacerda, inscribed books, handwritten poems and other gifts from the likes of John Ashbery, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, Marianne Moore, Octavio Paz and Anne Sexton, among many others. At the opening reception, fellow writers and friends gather to remember this charismatic figure. Insolent Grace is made possible with support from the Mário Soares Foundation, the Luso–American Foundation & the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Portugal.
