Book Launch and Reading
Meriç Algün Ringborg and Erdem Taşdelen
Investigations on Artistic Subjectivity
Saturday, May 16, 2–4pm
Join us for this book launch and reading to celebrate a new publication, a collaborative project by Turkish artists, Meric Algün Ringborg, who exhibited at the CAG in 2013 and is currently in the La Biennale di Venezia - 56th International exhibition, and Vancouver-based Taşdelen.
Readings by Fabiola Carranza and Erdem Taşdelen.
Collaborators Meriç Algün Ringborg and Erdem Taşdelen asked twenty-two artists to respond to a series of ten concise statements they drafted as ‘summaries of Marcel Proust’s thoughts’ from his novel 'In Search of Lost Time'. In the novel the recurring motifs of the nature of art and the role of the artist are explored at great length. Contributors in the publication include: Derya Akay, Emanuel Almborg, Fabiola Carranza, Andjeas Ejiksson, Julia Feyrer, Goldin+Senneby, Johanna Gustafsson Furst, Jordy Hamilton, Allison Hrabluik, David Larsson, Karl Larsson, Matts Leiderstam, Nanna Nordstrom, Marina Roy, Holly Schmidt, Lina Selander, Lisa Tan, Marika Troili, Tris Vonna-Michell, Hyung Min Yoon and Elizabeth Zvonar.
Also available for sale at the launch copies of "All the Decisive Blows' A book of quotes on the left hand" by Erdem Taşdelen. Special price of $15.
Publication regular price $20 - special launch price $15.
