Event Details

As part of its All of the Sky: Five Poets, Five Saturdays series, The Aldrich will host five noted contemporary poets –Mahogany L. Browne, Rosebud Ben-Oni, Eileen Myles, Emily Skillings, and Nathalie Handal – for Saturday readings held in person in the Museum beginning on July 23, 2022.

The five poets selected for this series each bring their varied perspectives from a diverse range of backgrounds and will read selections that reflect the role feminist writers, artists, and leaders have played in their practices. A talkback and book signing will follow each reading.

This series is organized in connection with the group exhibition 52 Artists: A Feminist Milestone. It celebrates the fifty-first anniversary of the historic exhibition Twenty Six Contemporary Women Artists, curated by Lucy R. Lippard and presented at The Aldrich in 1971. The exhibition will showcase work by the artists included in the original 1971 exhibition, alongside a new roster of twenty-six female identifying or nonbinary emerging artists, tracking the evolution of feminist art practices over the past five decades. 52 Artists will encompass the entirety of the Museum—the first exhibition to do so in The Aldrich’s new building which was inaugurated in 2004.
