Poem Atlas is an exhibition platform and occasional publisher of books and object poems curated by poet and artist Astra Papachristodoulou. This platform exists to connect people to the transformative power of visual poetry, a form of poetry that poetry that presupposes a viewer as well as a reader. This initiative aims to achieve this by showcasing experimental writers from diverse backgrounds in the UK and beyond, through physical and online exhibitions, anthologies, books and objects.
To date, we have curated events in the UK and beyond including The Poetry Society, the Art Park Gallery, the Winning Gallery and The Westminster Reference Library, and have showcased work from over 100 new and established poets from around the world. We also started the tradition of online visual poetry exhibitions in December 2019, and have curated several successful online exhibitions since. As Poem Atlas is the first ever exhibition platform in London to focus on object poetry, the project is aimed to poets who are interested to expand their knowledge of visual poetry.
