ANTHONY ELMS: Susan Howe has been a poet for decades and a well respected poet, and I know many artists turn to her and see her as a kindred spirit to follow her every sort of book and reading. And she actually has an MFA in art. She started as an artist, and became a poet. 


NARRATOR: Anthony Elms has included a series of Howe’s poem collages in the Biennial. They’re meant to be looked at as much as read. Howe made a recording of related works with the musician David Grubbs. It’s called Frolic Architecture.
