Hymns To Hermes:

The Poetics of James Broughton.
Event detail
 

This exhibit explores the poetic world of Bay Area poet and avant-garde film maker James Broughton.

From his involvement with the San Francisco Poetry Renaissance in the 1940s to his gay love inspired poems of the 1990s, Broughton's vision and voice was unique and slyly alluring.  Fusing whimsy, paradox and an exhilarating use of the English language, James created masterpieces of poetics. Along the way he partnered with lover Kermit Sheets to found The Centaur Press, helped to create American avant-garde poetic film making, and worked closely with Bay Area gay publisher Manroot Press. All three of these aspects of his work are looked at in this exhibition along with a generous helping of his poetry.
