Poets on Henry Darger

with John Ashbery, A.M. Homes and David Shapiro

Mar 22, 2002 | 6:00 pm

Henry Darger

The genius of Henry Darger—a reclusive Chicago janitor now recognized as one of the most important outsider artists of the 20th Century—is visited through the poetry of John Ashbery and critical work of novelist A.M. Homes. Readings from Darger’s epic, In the Realms of the Unreal, and an introduction by poet and art critic David Shapiro, make this event an essential companion to the museum’s comprehensive exhibition of Darger’s work.
