Poet Slash Artist Film Season

As part of MIF’s Poet Slash Artist, HOME has curated a corresponding film season to look at inter-disciplinary practice and figures who overlap between the worlds of art and poetry.

Curated by Rachel Hayward, Head of Film and Jason Wood, Artistic Director: Film and Culture

Poet Slash Artist brings together a wide array of work by poets who make visual art and visual artists who work with words. With an exhibition at HOME and specially commissioned new work installed in public spaces across the city (check back in June for locations and a map), this far-reaching project explores the current and future connections between poetry and the visual arts – forging new links between them across cultures, continents, languages and generations.

Tickets go on sale at 12pm Fri 25 Jun
