A quick public service announcement: the great John Giorno—the poet, painter, and star of Warhol’s film Sleep (1963)—will be performing at his New York gallery, Elizabeth Dee, next Friday, May 8, the day before his first exhibition there closes. Giorno told me earlier this year that he practices his poetry reading every single day, which is perhaps not surprising since they are generally ecstatic, invigorating experiences. Below, a clip of a 2009 performance at Galerie Almine Rech in Paris. He’ll go on at Dee at 6:30 p.m.
