Montage, a haiku gallery edited by Allan Burns and sponsored by The Haiku Foundation, was updated weekly from March to December of 2009. A comparative exhibit, its goal was to juxtapose the work of poets, often from different times and places, in order to suggest something about the range and breadth of haiku in English. Translations of Japanese classics, world haiku, pioneering attempts to domesticate haiku to English, senryu, and experimental efforts to stretch the boundary of what haiku in English can be—all were fair game. Each gallery had its theme and typically featured seven haiku by three different poets.
