Audiopoetry exhibition in Leicester features twelve film-poems

Twelve poetry films will be included in an exhibition of audiopoetry beginning Monday at the Cube Gallery in Leicester, England.

Poems, Places & Soundscapes is an international exhibition of digitally produced sound-&-poetry focusing on place and soundscape, installed in Leicester’s Cube Gallery (part of The Phoenix arts complex) from Monday 7 April to Friday 25 April 2014 (see opening times below). Poet Mark Goodwin and Brian Lewis (of Longbarrow Press) bring together and present a range of vivid, immersive sound-enhanced poetry made through various poet, musician and sound-designer collaborations, as well as by individual poet-sound-artists. The exhibition also includes a selection of ‘place-entranced’ film-poems.

An open and informal panel discussion about sound-enhanced poetry and film-poems will take place at 6.30pm on Thursday 10 April 2014 at The Phoenix (4 Midland Street, Leicester, LE1 1TG).
