Our glimpse of life is from a train going fast: where we can barely distinguish the present from the past.


Love is watered by truth at its roots but its arms reach up towards light and kndness.

MoMA presents M o d e r n P o e t s
Revitalizing Frank O’Hara’s legacy and MoMA’s historical commitment
to poetry, this new series invites poets to bring the literary tradition to
the Museum’s collection. Three times a year, poets read historical works
and their own work that reflects on modern and contemporary art.
Writing in Time: Poets and Technology
Wednesday, March 28, 6:00 p.m.
The Celeste Bartos Theater
4 West 54 Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues
Greta Byrum Robert Fitterman
Kenneth Goldsmith Caroline Bergvall
The exhibition Out of Time: A Contemporary View considers notions
of temporality and reconstructions of time through memory, fantasy,
dreams, and history in a variety of media. The increasing prevalence
of technology, whether as an artist’s medium or as visual stimulation
in mass culture, changes the way we experience, record, and perceive
time. On the occasion of this exhibition, MoMA asked poets to explore
how technology informs the language and rhythms of poetry. Greta
Byrum, poet and sound artist; Robert Fitterman, poet; Kenneth
Goldsmith, poet, Professor, Creative Writing Program, The University
of Pennsylvania, and founding editor of ubuweb.com; and Caroline
Bergvall, poet, and Co-Chair, Writing MFA, Milton Avery School
for the Arts, Bard College, read works of their own and of others.
This program is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art
and ubuweb.com.
Tickets ($5; members, students, seniors, and staff of other museums
$3) can be purchased at the lobby information desk, the Film desk,
the Cullman Building lobby, or online at www.ticketweb.com.
