Please join us for the launch of the inaugural publication of Also As Well Too Press: SELECTED TEXT by Collin Zipp.
SELECTED TEXT is a bookwork that records and reinterprets the structure of language through contemporary modes of communication. This artist book consists of a collapsed dialogue that eliminates individual voice. Produced in a limited edition of 50, each book is numbered and signed by the artist.
Thursday, July 16, 6-9pm. Meet at the southeast corner of Vimy Ridge Park (Canora Street at Preston Avenue) at the barbecue pits. BYOBBBQ.
