‘A Fine Day for Seeing’ takes its title from the New York School poet and curator Frank O’Hara, who bridged literary and artistic worlds in the late 1950s. In this spirit of collaboration between word and image, the exhibition presents ten pairs of internationally acclaimed contemporary poets and artists who have been invited to work together in dialogue.


The show is curated by Paul Carey-Kent, an art writer with a long standing interest in poetry, and Dr. Tamar Yoseloff, a poet with a strong engagement with visual art.


During your visit you can listen to the poems via QR code, please bring headphones with you. A small number of audio sets will be available at the gallery reception.
