Mary Di Lucia is a poet whose work explores places real and imagined, from a dream version of Russia to the future Antarctica. Her recent collaborations with Laura Gibellini (“All It Could Have Been,” “Variations on a Domestic Interior,” “There is something about a dot and a line…”) have opened up conversations about the gap between the inspiration for a poem and the place of the poem itself. Her creative work was awarded a New York Times Foundation Fellowship and she has also been recognized by the Scholastic Art Alliance for her work as a teacher to younger students. Besides an MFA in Poetry from New York University, she holds a doctorate in Comparative Literature from Harvard University; her scholarship concerns the questioning and reimagining of ancient foundation myth, culminating in a “Sabine version” of Rome’s foundation story.
Conceived as a transdisciplinary discussion, this event is considered as an extension of the dialogue that started in the book by Laura F. Gibellini Construyendo un Lugar / Constructing a Place. Please join us following the event for a closing reception of ICI Curatorial Hub at TEMP.
