Born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, Simic is known for his surreal, metaphysical poems. His first collection “What the Grass Says” was published 1967. Since then, he has published more than 60 books.

Angelopoulos’ paintings for the exhibit were created based on his interpretation of selections from “The World Doesn’t End,” the collection that won Simic the Pulitzer Prize in 1990.
