Black Rock Press: David Abel — Performing the Book
The Black Rock Press is pleased to announce a book release event for “Selected Durations” by David Abel, a limited-edition artist book. This collaborative project, along with other recent and forthcoming projects of the press, is intended to encourage readers to consider the performative dimension of books as objects. In celebration of the book’s publication, Abel will perform “Selected Durations,” as well as a number of other pieces in various media. His work in this vein explores the visual, material, and interactive aspects of reading, and illustrates the diverse physical forms that texts can take. The reading/performance will be followed by a reception and exhibition of the artist book project.
