Ekphrasis Twelve at the Art Gallery of Ontario

Sunday, September 26th at 3 pm.

 Ekphrasis Twelve at the AGO

This project brings together twelve recognized poets, dancers and musicians taking inspiration from the permanent collections at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Ekphrasis, one form of art commenting on another, goes back to Ancient Greece and continues on as a vital form in our century. Artists of every stripe have long found inspiration in the artistic expression of their peers and forbears. At the AGO, you can have it all: artworks that inspire and a diverse collection of creative responses, works of art in their own right.

Join poets Rhea Tregebov, Alison Watt, Sue Chenette, Sue MacLeod, John Reibetanz, Jim Nason, Helen Humphreys, Joanne Page, Julie Salverson, dancers Julia Aplin and Hope Terry, and jazz cellist Kye Marshall for an afternoon of poetry, music and dance.

Regular admission prices apply.

 Ekphrasis: a rhetorical device in which one medium of art tries to relate to another… and in doing so, relate more directly to the audience, through its illuminative liveliness… For example, a painting may re-present a sculpture; a poem portray a picture; a sculpture depict a heroine of a novel; in fact, given the right circumstances, any art may describe any other art (Wikipedia).
