The Standard x EXILE Books Present: Concrete Poetry Dinner
Join us in celebration of the Sackner Archive, the world’s largest collection of concrete and visual poetry right here in Miami, FL. This performative dinner will commemorate the intersection of word and image, where language, typography, and poetry inspire each course. From typewriter pieces by Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, to event scores by Alison Knowles and linear poems by Ian Hamilton Finlay, this unique evening will be a sensory delight in celebration of our city’s dynamic print culture.
