Marton Csokas reads Gabriele Tinti



Marton Csokas reads Gabriele Tinti

Join us for an exclusive event combining ancient art and contemporary poetry. As a double bill with the Ancient Art Council's lecture The Munich Doryphoros, Italian poet Gabriele Tinti will present poems inspired by classical sculpture, such as the Greek statue of Asklepios, one of the most prominent antiquities of the Legion of Honor's collection, read by Marton Csokas.

Marton Csokas is a New Zealand film and stage actor. During his career, he has worked with important film directors such as Peter Jackson, George Lucas, Richard Donner, Ridley Scott, Tim Burton, Jim Sheridan and Darren Aronofsky. Csokas' stage credits include plays by Tom Stoppard and William Shakespeare. Marton will read some of Mr. Tinti's poems against the backdrop of captivating images from similar performances at other major museums in the US and Europe.

Gabriele Tinti is an Italian poet and writer. Working with prestigious institutions such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, to name a few, he has composed poems for ancient sculptures. A recent recipient of the 2018 Montale Poetry Award, Mr. Tinti will be available for Q&As after the presentation.

A collaboration of the Ancient Art Council of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Italian Cultural Institute.
