Bob Holman's website.
From Slam to Hiphop, from performance poetry
to spoken word, Bob Holman has been a central
figure in the reemergence of poetry in our culture.
His latest collection of poems, a collaboration
with Chuck Close, is A Couple of Ways of Doing
Something, which was first exhibited at the
Peggy Guggenheim Museum during the Venice Biennale.
The TV series he produced for PBS, “The
United States of Poetry,” won the INPUT,
International Public Television Award; he founded
Mouth Almighty/Mercury Records, the only major
spoken word label in the world, in 1995; and ran
the infamous poetry slams at the Nuyorican Poets
Café from 1988-1996. He is currently Visiting
Professor of Writing at the Columbia School of
the Arts, Founder/Proprietor of the Bowery Poetry
Club, and Artistic Director of Study Abroad on
