BOOK PARTY: THE ART OF COLLABORATION

Join us at A.I.R. on Sunday, April 9th from 4-6pm to celebrate "The Art of Collaboration: Poets, Artists, Books" edited by Anca Cristofovici & Barbara Montefalcone.

There will be talks by  Vincent Katz, Susan Bee, Charles Bernstein, Kyle Schlesinger, Constance Lewallen, and Anca Cristofovici.
 

 

"The Art of Collaboration brings together the perspective and insight of a distinguished and international community of poets, artists, publishers, scholars and curators, drawing from their rich diversity of experience to identify a useful framework for documenting and understanding the recent history and practice of the old-age tradition of collaborating with text and image. This collection is an invaluable tool whose very presence is a brilliant example of its subject."
