Emmett Williams

Emmett Williams (Greenville, US, 1925 – Berlin, Germany, 2007). Emmett Williams was an American poet and visual artist. He was married to British visual artist Ann Nöel. Williams spent most of his later life in Europe. His highly productive oeuvre finds form in written and performative expressions. He translated and “reanecdoted” Daniel Spoerri’s “Topographie anecdotée du hasard” (An Anecdoted Topography of Chance), collaborated with Claes Oldenburg on Store Days, and edited An Anthology of Concrete Poetry, all published by the Something Else Press, which was owned and managed by fellow Fluxus artist Dick Higgins. From the mid-1960s through the early 1970s Williams was editor in chief of the Something Else Press. Francesco Conz and Williams were friends and collaborators for more than thirty years and produced numerable editions and works together in Asolo and Verona.
