Portrait of Shin Yu Pai

Wednesday, April 5, 7:00 pm, at the Burien Library:

Poet Shin Yu Pai discusses the history of artist-poet collaborations and will show visual examples.

Discover the fascinating work that can result when visual arts and poetry collide.

During the talk, she shows her work as a writer, her commissions for both art and cultural museums, and her work with painters, photographers, installation artists, composers, and video artists on collaborative work. She’ll also discuss developing hybrid works that bring together her creative practices as a writer, photographer, and museologist.

Shin Yu Pai is currently poet laureate of the City of Redmond and was a 2014 Stranger Genius Award nominee. She has also served as a poet-in-residence for the Seattle Art Museum. She received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Pai lives in Seattle.
