Building on 35 years of poetry programs at Dia, Poetry & pairs a poet with an artist of another discipline to create a unique experience. Kamilah N. Foreman, Dia’s director of publications, curates a program series that manifests the vitality of one of the oldest art forms in full-fledged interactive, performative events in our museum spaces as well as out in the streets.
