ED SANDERS : GLYPHS 1962-2009
A rare exhibition of nearly half a century of Ed Sanders?s glyph-poems
produced between 1962 and 2009 will be on display at The Arm in
Williamsburg [Brooklyn, NY] from July 10 through July 31. An opening
reception will be held on July 10th at 6PM.
Building on a long history of utilizing a highly visible language that
continues into the present, Sanders?s glyph-poems fuse image with
text, and image as text. Political, personal, ephemeral, historical,
uncanny, and humorous?the glyph-poems on display at The Arm appear in
several different mediums, including original drawings, collages,
mimeographed pages from Fuck You/ A Magazine of the Arts (1962-'65),
plus a number featuring color images, and an artist?s book. Over 200
Glyph-works will be featured in the show.
In addition, Glyphs 1962-2009 will feature new letterpress prints and
a limited edition catalogue produced on location at The Arm.
Edward Sanders is a poet, historian and musician. He is at work, since
1998, on a 9-volume America, a History in Verse. The first five
volumes, tracing the history of the 20th century, have been completed
and published in a fully indexed CD format, over 2,000 pages in
length, by Blake Route Press. Another recent writing project is Poems
for New Orleans, a book and CD on the history of that great city, and
its tribulations during and after hurricane Katrina. He has been
granted a Guggenheim fellowship in poetry, a National Endowment for
the Arts fellowship in verse, an American Book Award for his collected
poems, and other awards for his writing. Other books in print include
Tales of Beatnik Glory (4 volumes published in a single edition),
1968, a History in Verse; The Poetry and Life of Allen Ginsberg, The
Family, a history of the Charles Manson murder group, and Chekhov, a
biography in verse of Anton Chekhov.
Sanders was the founder of the satiric folk/rock group, The Fugs,
which has released many albums and CDs during its 45 year history. The
Fugs have recently completed a CD, Be Free, The Fugs Final CD (Part
2), featuring 14 new tunes. Be Free will be released in late summer.
Two of Sanders' books, The Family and Tales of Beatnik Glory, are
under option to be made into movies. His selected poems, 1986-2008,
