Heart Beats

This exhibition combines Beat writers with little magazines and the artwork of the period sourced from NEHMA's collection and the Merrill-Cazier Library to communicate the interconnectedness of the entire Beat artistic scene.

Exhibition runs from November 21st through February 1st.

The Beat artists represented in this exhibition embody unique expressions of the artistic rebellion that rocked American culture during the 1950s and can be considered individual beats within the pulsating “Beat heart.” Poet Allen Ginsberg’s first public reading of his poem “Howl,” at the Six Gallery in San Francisco on October 7, 1955, triggered an unanticipated explosion of emotional energies unleashed by his denouncement of spiritual emptiness and blind conformity to a growing capitalist, materialist society.
