From the curators/editors Victoria Bean and Chris McCabe:

The New Concrete is a major new anthology charting the explosion of visual poetry in the 21st century.  Having just been released by Hayward Publishing, the launch of this book promises to be a landmark event in visual poetry.
Join us for an afternoon of film and live performance showcasing some of the most exciting work in this field. The event brings together some of the most celebrated poets and artists working at the intersection of visual art and literature.
