Damon Krukowski: NOT TO BE PLAYED

Oct 08 (All day) to Oct 25 (All day)


Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge, Level 3, Sert Gallery

Exhibition + Performances: Oct 8–25, 2015
Presented by: Carpenter Center

Damon Krukowski: NOT TO BE PLAYED is a multifaceted exhibition featuring archival materials, performance, and a publication that together revive an obscure audio recording made by Ezra Pound at Harvard University in 1939. Recorded on the eve of World War II, Pound believed his poem “Sestina: Altaforte”—or “Bloody Sestina,” as it came to be known—could incite violence. He was convinced it possessed a persuasive power over the future: several years after making the recording, Pound wrote a letter stating it was “not to be played.”
