Lecture: The Inter-Arts Poetics of Augusto de Campos

Friday, November 11, 6-8pm 

EFA Project Space, 323 West 39 St, 2nd Floor

 

In conjunction with Telefone Sem Fio: Word-Things of Augusto de Campos Revisited, Charles A. Perrone (University of Florida) will elaborate on the sixty years of incomparable inter-arts poetics in the multifarious work of Augusto de Campos. As a complement to the exhibition, Perrone will share further examples of portable visual poetry, material lyric, mail art, early digital interpretations, and sound tracks.

Perrone will be joined by the exhibition curators, and several artist/poets who have contributed new meditations on de Campos’s work.

Charles Perrone  is the author of Brazil, Lyric, and the Americas (2010), Seven Faces: Brazilian Poetry Since Modernism (1996), and Masters of Contemporary Brazilian Song:  MPB 1965-1985 (1989).  Augusto de Campos figures prominently in all three.
