Minimalism in Poetry and Music Event

On Friday, June 16, BOA will collaborate with Deborah Ronnen Fine Art and DJ Father Time for "Minimalism in Poetry and Music," a special event that is part of a larger pop-up art exhibit entitled Minimal Mostly.

Starting at 7:00pm, the event will feature minimalist artwork by renowned artists all over the world, accompanied by music and stripped-down poems for community members to read. For the complete event details and a full list of event readers, click here.

We thought we'd feature some minimalist poems and art pieces in the days leading up to the event. Below are some pieces that will be featured that evening. We hope you will join us. 

Amanda Means, Folded And Crushed 44 (2017)

Laure-Anne Bosselaar
"Advice," from Small Gods of Grief 

Don’t show
your work
until you’re
ready to
defend it.

Then, let
others
call it art.

Ellsworth Kelly, Small Blue Curve (2012)

Sam Hamill
"Ish Province Worksong," from Gratitude

The plan
is the work.

The work
is play,
joy,

wherein reside
silence
and song

side by side
lighting
the way. 

Mika Tajima, Furniture Art Beijing (2016)

Ko Un, from Flowers of a Moment
Translated by Brother Anthony of Taizè, Gary Gach, Ko Un, and Young-moo Kim

Be like a dandelion seed
floating in the breeze
Be like a bearded late autumn reed seed

Set out alone, create a great new world
