Crag Hill & Nico Vassilakis, editors of the forthcoming *Last Vispo
Anthology 1998-2008 *will present a performance of essays from the
anthology with collaborator and contributor James Yeary.


*The Last Vispo Anthology, 1998-2008* extends the dialectic between art and
literature that began with the concrete poetry movement fifty years ago.
Rather than settling into predictable unchallenged patterns, this vibrant
poetry is seizing new tools to grow the body of work inhabiting the
borderlands of visual art and poetry. In addition, as more social and
cognitive interaction occurs in digital space/s, the need to develop new
processes of thinking and communicating persists. *The Last Vispo Anthology
*provides tools toward that development, creating ways to converse across
and within images and texts. This anthology is global in scope with 130
contributors from over twenty countries, with proportionally more women
than previous anthologies. *The Last Vispo Anthology* documents a decade,
1998 to 2008,  in which a burst of activity surfaced through the advent of
computerization across the world of visual poetry – similar to the mail art
movement of the 1980s.
