Discover the fascinating work that can result when visual arts and poetry collide. Poet Shin Yu Pai discusses the history of artist-poet collaborations and creative innovation in American literature. During the talk, she shows her work as a writer, her commissions for both art and cultural museums, and her work with painters, photographers, installation artists, composers, and video artists on collaborative work.
