It has been long argued that poetry is best experienced when spoken aloud.
To mark the launch of our newest exhibition, which pairs select works from our permanent collection with fresh new works of poetry, the AGH has invited each of its nine contributing poets to perform a live reading of their works, and to provide a little backstory on how these compositions came into being.
Featuring Amani Omar, DonDon, Eddie Lartey, Gisy Mohamed, Jaidyn Fenton, Kaitlyn Tolch, Maeve Jenkinson, Paulo Leon Reyes, and Tanya Pineda.
Available online 24/7
