Note this event takes place in Los Angeles as part of Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair.
Artists Yusuf Hassan and Kwamé Sorrell (co-publishers of BlackMass) discuss their 2023 LAABF exhibition: a symphony a work in progress (pt II., andante). Building on a show first staged at Printed Matter in 2022 by Hassan, the reimagined installation-as-publication carries on a performatory exchange around motifs in music, sculpture, and architecture through an array of printed pieces (including simple folded sheets, rubber stamp prints, xeroxes, broadsides, and c-prints). Hassan and Sorrell will speak to how the show assembles an improvisatory visual dialogue across a range of interests seen through the lens of publishing, grounded in the printed form.
