Poetry in the Galleries
The Ashmolean welcomes back old friends, and new ones as well, to our series of poetry tours in 2023.
Once again poets from Oxford and surrounding areas will explore and celebrate the Museum’s pieces, renowned or recherche, intriguing or glorious.
On the first of these tours in January, our poet speakers will focus on work in the Manisha Gera Baswani: Postcards from Home exhibition and in our India galleries. Poems will be recited next to the objects and artworks that inspired the poets. If you want to talk to the poets, most of us are friendly!
