The Poetry Project


Happy Birthday Gerard Malanga!

The Poetry Project invites you to join us in celebrating the poet, photographer, filmmaker, and downtown icon Gerard Malanga on the occasion of his 80th birthday! The evening will feature a slideshow of Malanga’s photographs, a screening of Film Notebooks (2005), a reading by Malanga of his recent work, and a conversation and Q&A with Malanga moderated by Vincent Katz.


We hope you can join us at 7:00PM for a reception before the event. The program will begin with a screening of Film Notebooks at 8:00PM. Masks will be optional while enjoying drinks and company during the reception but will be required once the event starts.


Masks are required at all Poetry Project events unless otherwise specifically noted. If you forget to bring your mask, we are happy to provide you with one. We also encourage all event attendees to take a rapid test the day of the event before heading to the church.

This in-person event will also be livestreamed via The Poetry Project's YouTube. Livestream captions will be available via a StreamText link or the CC button on YouTube's player.
