Ray Hsu: Avant-Garde Poetry in the Archive Trace of the Job Market

Friday, September 18, 7:00 pm
College Library, Media Studio Room 2252

UW-Madison Campus

You are cordially invited to an evening with Ray Hsu, who was once a graduate student here at the UW-Madison English department and is now an award-winning poet, famed artist-entrepreneur, and teacher. He will be reading and performing from his body of experimental work, as well as discussing and answering questions about his experiences as an avant-garde practitioner navigating conservative forms such as funding applications and job ads.

Ray Hsu is the award-winning author of two critically acclaimed volumes of poetry, Anthropy (2004) and Cold Sleep Permanent Afternoon (2010). A graduate of UW-Madison’s very own English PhD program in 2008, Ray returns to read, perform, dazzle, and astonish for one night only. Named one of “Vancouver’s most promising young entrepreneurs” by Canadian national newspaper The Globe and Mail, Ray is an eclectic magician deeply invested in pushing the boundaries of art, business, and interdisciplinary collaboration. He is also a co-founder and co-director of Art Song Lab, which puts composers and poets in connection to create new vocal compositions in the (not so) classical art song tradition.
