In conjunction with the ongoing exhibition habitus, The Fabric Workshop and Museum presents a poetry reading by Natalie Shapero. A contributing poet for Ann Hamilton's exhibition newspaper, Shapero will read from her forthcoming book Hard Child, and discuss her writing process as it relates to themes presented in habitus.

This event is free and open to the public; registration is encouraged.

habitus is an exhibition created by artist Ann Hamilton that weaves text, textile, and image together as mediums for an imaginative and tactile exchange between artist and audience. An exhibition of new works by Hamilton alongside a selection of historical objects, including literature, textiles, dolls, and needlework portfolios, is on view at The Fabric Workshop and Museum through January 8. From September-October 2016, a site-specific installation at Municipal Pier 9 propelled visitors into an immersive atmosphere of massive cylindrical curtains.
