Poetry Reading: Deborah Jack


Poetry Reading: Deborah Jack

Thursday, July 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm


Art on Hulfish

Join the multidisciplinary artist Deborah Jack for a hybrid poetry reading and artist talk as she presents selections from her poetry collection skin (2006), along with newer works that will be placed in context with her visual art on view in Traces on the Landscape. Across Jack’s practice, representations of the tumultuous sea and landscape of her home island of St. Maarten are keepers of the collective memories of silenced ancestors and witnesses to the cyclical trauma, rebirth, and renewal of the African Diaspora.   

Join us in-person at 11 Hulfish Street or register for the livestreamed event here.

LATE THURSDAYS! This event is part of the Museum’s Late Thursdays programming, made possible in part by Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970. Additional support for this program has been provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
