Bruce Andrews: Poetry as Praxis

Free and open to the public

Bruce Andrews is a New York City-based poet, performance writer, literary theorist & recently retired left-wing political science professor. As Musical Director for Sally Silvers & Dancers, he has created sound designs and live mixes of music & text for over two decades of performances. From 1978 to 1981, Andrews, along with poet and scholar Charles Bernstein, edited the magazine L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, which galvanized a new and politically engaged literary avant-garde that would become known as “Language poetry.” Although Language poetry transformed the landscape of American poetry, Andrews’ work has never been limited by disciplinary boundaries. His work as a sound designer, music director, multimedia writer, theorist, and political scientist are all integrated into a continued interrogation of the connections between art, politics, and social life. The most recent of his dozen or so books is You Can’t Have Everything… Where Would You Put It! from Veer Books in London.
