BOOK CLUB

Wednesday, April 3rd at 6pm
Galleries
Free members / students, $5 not-yet-members

For more than 40 years British artist Tom Phillips has been working on A Humument, a series of treated book pages on A Human Document, the Victorian novel by W.H. Mallock. Phillips has completely altered the individual pages of the original book twice, each edition creating a new concrete text poem. Maryland-based artist Johnny Carrera has taken on his own “life’s work” for over fifteen years. Carrera’s project, like Philips’s starts with an existing book: in this case, the original engravings of the 1859 American Dictionary of the English Language originally printed by the Webster’s company. Carrera’s, The Pictorial Webster's Dictionary, transforms his source to create a new lexicon of words, images and meaning. Together these projects not only offer insights into the working process of two artists but also allow viewers to rethink, books, images and the nature of time. The April 3rd Book Club will take place in the Life’s Work exhibition, where Phillips and Carrera will read from their books. Coffee & cake, wine & cheese will be served.
