Byron Kim & Carl Phillips in Conversation
in Simmons Auditorium A, Tepper, CMU. Co-sponsored by CMU, Center for the Arts in Society with support from University of Pittsburgh,Center for African American Poetry and Poetics.
Byron Kim & Carl Phillips extend a conversation that began in 2017 when the Pulitzer Arts Foundation brought the pair together to discuss Phillips’s poems and Kim’s paintings. Kim’s recent series of bruise paintings, on view as part of the exhibition "This Skin of Ours" at the Miller ICA, were inspired by Phillips’s poem “Alba: Innocence.”
