Boulder Art Museum Hosts Poetry Readings in Collaboration with the Biennial of the Americas

Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art has constructed Line Break, a poetry and performance cafe, in downtown Denver as a part of the Biennial of the Americas.

The seven-week experiment is a pop-up coffee shop and conversation bar, dedicated to the “poetry of Now! and tomorrow.”

As a part of that project, a reading entitled “Mouthing Off” will take place tonight at Line Break. The reading is curated by Julie Carr, and features six of the Front Range’s most dynamic feminists and poets: Khadijah Queen, Ruth Ellen Kocher, Julie Carr, Eleni Sikélianòs, Andrea Rexilius, and Anne Waldman.

The reading starts at 7:30pm.

Each week, Line Break takes a different thematic approach, and brings artists from diverse disciplines together in multi-arts collaborations through workshops, readings, performances, discussions, and other programs related to the poetry of today.

This week’s theme is “The Americas I want to live in,” and includes two events, including “Mouthing Off.” The second event takes place August 15th, at 7:30, and is entitled “The Avant Range.” Curated by Brian Buckley from Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe, the reading features a selection of poets from the Front Range, including Joseph Braun, Reed Bye, Jack Collum, J. Michael Martinez, Maria Melendez, and Elizabeth Robinson.

Line Break is located at the corner of 16th and Wewatta Street in Denver, and concludes August 29th.
