1968: Blood of the Poets

Blood of a Poet Box 1965-8 by Eleanor Antin born 1935

For her piece Blood of a Poet Box (1965-8), Eleanor Antin collected blood specimens from 100 poets, which she preserved and labeled in glass slides. The work alludes to Jean Cocteau’s 1930 film Le Sang d’un Poète [Blood of a Poet].
