John Giorno

Like many artworks, the Poem-Prints by the American artist John Gionro (1936) require some information in order to be fully appreciated in the spectrum of their particular context. Their hard, strong phrases never let one imagine the long, rhythmic poems of their author. John Giorno is one of the most important representatives of American poetry of the 1960s and 1970s. Struck by the fermentation of the ’60s New York art scene, and most notably by artists like Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg along with poets such as William S. Burroughs and Brion Gysin, Giorno developed new forms of poetry. Like the Pop artists, he worked with found images for which he sought new “supports” in the area of mass media and new technology.
