A Memorial for John Ashbery

with Maxine Groffsky, Elizabeth Hazan, Ann Lauterbach, Dara Wier, Trevor Winkfield and musical performances by Dashon Burton, Melvin Chen, Sarah Rothenberg and the Brentano String Quartet

To reduce all this to a small variant,/ To step free at last, minuscule on the gigantic plateau—/ This was our ambition: to be small and clear and free.

Longtime friends and fellow artists pay tribute to the life and work of poet John Ashbery, who died in September at the age of 90. Co-sponsored by the Academy of American Poets, PennSound, Poets House and the Poetry Society of America.

This event is free. You must reserve your tickets via this website or the 92Y Box Office.
