Some Words After Time. Thomas Huber artist talk and a poetry reading by Edwin Torres

Edwin Torres is the author of seven books of poetry, including, Ameriscopia (University of Arizona Press), Yes Thing No Thing (Roof Books), and The PoPedology Of An Ambient Language (Atelos Books). He entered poetry through performance art in New York City’s East Village in the early 90’s. The neighborhood’s diversity plus the combined forces of Dixon Place, The Nuyorican Poets Café, and The St. Marks Poetry Project, shaped his multi-disciplinary approach to language. Fellowships include: New York Foundation for the Arts, The Foundation for Contemporary Performance Art, The DIA Arts Foundation, and The Poetry Fund. Anthologies include: American Poets in the 21st Century: The New Poetics Vol. 2, Post-Modern American Poetry Vol. 2, and Aloud: Voices From The Nuyorican Poets Café. He’s just completed “Open Sessions” a 2-year arts residency at The Drawing Center in NYC and his next book, “Xoeteox: the infinite word object” will be published by Wave Books in 2018. He currently lives in Beacon, NY.
