Jim Dine as Poet

An innovator throughout his long career, American artist Jim Dine (b. 1935, Cincinnati, Ohio) is first and foremost known as a visual artist, yet he has accompanied his vast career with an extensive body of poetry that is driven by the same energy that powers his painting and sculptures. Dine rose to prominence in late-1950’s New York. He played a key role in creating the first 'Happenings' and thereafter was closely associated with the Pop Art movement. His diverse body of work defies such easy categorization, however, as it is also understood as seminal to Neo-Dada and Neo-Expressionism. Dine performs a poetry reading live from his studio on Gray’s Instagram Live. Join @richardgraygallery at 12 noon EST, 6pm CET.
