Reading and lecture

In collaboration with The Broad’s Jasper Johns: ‘Something Resembling Truth’ – an exhibition featuring six decades of work and more than 120 of Jasper Johns’ most iconic and significant works, ALOUD explores the centrality of writers to Johns’ creative practice by presenting two evenings of readings by contemporary authors, presenting texts from Johns’ literary muses, Samuel Beckett, Ted Berrigan, Louis-Ferdinand Céline, Hart Crane, Frank O’Hara, and Herman Melville.

Join us for the second of the two evenings in Oculus Hall at The Broad, with Hanif Abdurraqib, Brendan Constantine, and Amy Gerstler reading and responding to the work of a chosen writer, while also sharing from their own work.
