Visual Poetry on the Page: With, Within, and Without the Word explores a movement that asks viewers to read the works as visual art. Unlike concrete, written poems, a visual poem “typically includes many other elements than alphabetic text,” including any number of mediums or artist manipulation, including painting, photos, digital manipulation or any other means to “obliterate the boundary between visual arts and literature.” “Visual poetry is what we can see,” organizer Crag Hill said in his curator statement. “It can be what we see when we see within, behind, and beyond words, when we see through parts of words, through and with letters, parts of letters, the ineffable marks we make on and in spaces we inhabit and aspire to live with and for.” Continua a leggere

angelhousepress _ a tribute to “the last vispo anthology”

AngelHousePress presents, a celebration of poetic
form of all kinds and an homage to those poets who try to extend the
definition of poetry. This year’s edition, which marks our fifth
anniversary, is a tribute to the Last Vispo, an anthology of visual
poetry edited by Nico Vassilakis and Crag Hill and published by
Fantagraphics in 2012. The site contains visual poetry, asemic writing,
collage, concrete poetry and other forms of whimsy by artists from
Australia, Canada, the USA, Finland, Hungary, Italy, and Sweden. Each
day in April a different visual poem will be shown. AngelHousePress
thanks all who participated and sent work for consideration and wishes
the month had at least forty five days in order to showcase all the
great poetry we received.

Starting April 1, please visit for a different visual poem every day.
