Kimberly Jackson

Collaborative poetry and visual art

Artist contact info:



Comfort Zone is a year-long collaborative poetry project accompanied by photography and visual art. Its goal is to foster intercultural exchange among linguistic communities in Newton, by creating new English translations of classic poems from other linguistic traditions. Poet Kimberly Gladman Jackson will be co-translating the poems with speakers of other languages, and documenting the collaborations visually. Newton Open Studios visitors will have a chance to view and read the results, and to participate in discussions led by the poet and her collaborators.
