MPC hosts Dean Rader as he launches his new book Before the Borderless: Dialogues with the Art of Cy Twombly.
In 2018, poet Dean Rader visited the Gagosian Gallery in New York to see a retrospective of the American painter Cy Twombly (1928-2011) called Beauty It is Finished: Drawings 1951-2008. The exhibit led Rader to a write a poem that would become the genesis of his book Before the Borderless: The Cy Twombly Cycle. Through a range of experimental forms, including a series of octets, Rader enters an imaginary dialogue with the artist while at the same time making poems that are autobiographical in nature. Come hear Mr. Rader read from his profound new work.
