Writers & Artists Respond: Dorothea Lasky
The Jewish Museum is hosting a reading with poet Dorothea Lasky, followed by a discussion with Associate Curator Kelly Taxter. Lasky earned her MFA at the University of Massachusetts and has published three poetry collections: AWE (2007), Black Life (2010), and Thunderbird (2012). She has also had several chapbooks and poems published throughout various journals and magazines, such as the New Yorker, Paris Review, and American Poetry Review.
The poetry reading will be in conjunction with an exhibition of new paintings by artist Eliza Douglas. Douglas creates paintings “that teeter between realism and abstraction, balletic grace and slapstick humor.” The new works created for the Jewish Museum lobby, Shadow and Light, and Blood and Bones are part of a series Douglas began in 2016. They are titled with lines from the poems of Dorothea Lasky.
