Legendary Brazilian poet and founder of the Concrete poetry movement Augusto de Campos and his son, the musician Cid Campos, present a multimedia performance of text, music, and, image. Working within the expanded territory of poetry, Augusto de Campos uses sounds to activate associative thinking and explore the possibilities of language. Revitalizing Frank O'Hara's legacy and MoMA's historical commitment to poetry, this series invites poets and performers to bring the literary tradition to the Museum's collection. They read historical works and their own work that reflects on modern and contemporary art.
