Established in 2001, the Artists on Artists Lecture Series invites artists to respond to an artist in Dia’s collection or programs. The series presents a variety of perspectives that address specific works or methods.
Dia’s Readings in Contemporary Poetry series pairs poets from different generations to create a range of voices while exhibiting some of the most striking characteristics of contemporary poetry. The program is organized by poet and author Vincent Katz and Dia curator Yasmil Raymond. Books by the poets will be sold at the event and many titles by poets in the series can be found on diabooks.org.
All lectures and readings take place at Dia:Chelsea, 535 West 22nd Street, 5th Floor, in New York City.
