The Poets in the Galleries (PinG) series utilizes the Museum's exhibition space as an invigorating site for exploration, interactive readings and discussions. For four Saturdays over November and December 2013, a different poet will conduct a lively presentation in response to the Museum's current biennial of Queens-based artists, Queens International 2013. Meet in the QM Cafe and then stroll through the galleries as the poet of the day selects key pieces to highlight, reads work along the way, and invites you to participate in discussion throughout. This year's PinG series was curated by Queens Poet Laureate Paolo Javier, based upon a concept initially developed by Amir Parsa.
