Poetry Marathon

Serpentine Gallery

This two-volume publication documents the Poetry Marathon, the fourth in the Serpentine Gallery’s acclaimed series of Marathon events, which took place in the closing weekend of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2009, designed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa of SANAA.

Featuring unique performances from leading poets, writers, artists, philosophers, scholars and musicians, the Poetry Marathon sought to revive the connections between poetry and the visual arts.

This special two-volume publication, conceived by M/M (Paris), features a transcript of the event alongside a book of drawings and photographs by M/M, which link together to create a sculptural form.

Artists featured include: Tracey Emin, Tacita Dean, Jimmie Durham, Sean Landers, Cerith Wyn Evans, Karl Holmqvist, Susan Hiller & Sue Hubbard, Stuart Brisley, Gilbert & George, Vito Acconci, Brian Eno, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, among many others.
