Roundtable discussion and performance - Friday, December 15, 2017 6:30 pm
Group exhibition - October 6 – December 16, 2017
Organized by John Roach, Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at Parsons School of Design and Art and an interdisciplinary artist.
Join Curator John Roach and artists Brian Dettmer, Douglas Paulson, and Benjamin Wright, for a Roundtable discussion, as well as a performance by András Böröcz, concerning the exhibit The Internal Machine. This exhibition presents a selection of works following the notion of the book as not only object but of mechanism, suggesting a perspective that considers the book object as a piece of technology.
