Bridget Riley - Study for Disfigured Circle - 1963
Anne Waldman and Ted Berrigan perform their collaborative poem “Memorial Day” as part of a reading series at 98 Greene Street Loft curated by the poet Ted Greenwald around 1973.
The video was shot by Sandy Hirsch on the only portable video format that existed at the time, 1/2 inch open reel video, often referred to as Portapak. Like any video shot in this format from the late 1960s to early 1970s, it is now a very fragile historical document. Digital preservation of this video allowed us to view it and share it with the public after decades of inaccessibility.
The Archives thanks the Berrigan estate, Waldman, and Hirsch for their generous permission to share the video. Happy Poetry Month!
