Reading from Notes from the History of Ed- by Anne Callahan
September 19, 2015
Printed Matter launches their new publication Notes from the History of Ed- by Anne Callahan, the final book in the Emerging Artists Publication Series. The book provides an historico-exemplary account of EDITING and/or THE EDITOR as a profession, activity and term. What happened (is happening) to the editor? (that sensitive visionary literary-journalistic figure of the last century). And, come to think of it, Where did the editor come from? This book traces the act of EDITING from Liu Xiang to Miranda Priestly with found texts and other visual forms. Performative readings by Anne Callahan, Micah Silver, Todd Rouhe and others.
This event takes place in The Classroom during the NY Art Book Fair at Moma PS1
