Gallery Conversation » The US-China Poetry Dialog 2017/ 中美诗歌对话

Join us in the galleries for an evening of poetry presented by the US-China Poetry Dialog. This event is a new collaboration between The University of Oklahoma, Beijing University, and the Mark Allen Everett Poetry Series and features an exchange of poets and poetry critics to talk about the state of poetry, literature, and art in the US and China, as well as the role of the arts in cross-cultural understanding. This year Chinese poets will include Xi Chuan, and Zhai Yongming, and Li Songtao and the US poets will include Hank Lazer, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, and Arthur Sze, and the  literary critics will include Stephen Fredman and Wang Guangming. Over the week the poets and critics will give poetry readings and engage audiences in conversation at the Fred Jones Museum of Art (Norman, Oklahoma), Crystal Bridges Art Museum (Bentonville, Arkansas), and at the Writers Colony at Dairy Hollow (Eureka Springs Arkansas). The Dialog will be moderated by Jonathan Stalling.
