‘A Fine Day for Seeing’ takes its title from the New York School poet and curator Frank O’Hara, who bridged literary and artistic worlds in the late 50s. In this spirit of collaboration between word and image, the exhibition presents ten pairs of internationally acclaimed poets and artists who have been invited to work in dialogue with each other.
