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. She’ll also discuss developing hybrid works that bring together her creative practices as a writer, photographer, and museologist.
