I was photographer for this collaboration between The Artist's Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The event, part of the series MetFridays: New York's Night Out revisited the significance of artist Carolee Schneemann's alternative readings of art and artifacts with a Poetry Parade, a live reading organized series by artists A.K. Burns and Katherine Hubbard. Moving through several of the Met's galleries, the parade presented readings by nine artists and thinkers who have paired texts with works in the Museum's collection, engaging them either as homage, confrontation, or companion. Taking Madame Cézanne's maiden name, Poetry Parade for Hortense Fiquet reconsiders the contributions of women in the arts, not as muses, props, wives, or possessions, but as active participants.
