Join us at Monograph Bookwerks for the Portland launch of tink thank by Christopher L G Hill.
Thursday, May 29 from 7-9pm.
Lisa Radon will read from Prototyping Eutopias, Morgan Ritter will perform a selection of poetry, and excerpts from tink thank will be presented by a poet-actor to be announced.
Since 2011, Christopher L G Hill (@CLGHill) has sustained an open-ended project of twitter poetry, “a florid poem flailing in reflexivity”. In his artist book tink thank, Hill has translated these haiku-like tweets for a non-virtual, printed environment. The result is not an analogue duplication; through addition, subtraction and reformatting, a new multi-stanza work has emerged that explores the lived nature of expression, impression and introspection.
tink thank is jointly published by 3-ply and Poly:be Press.
3-ply is an independent publishing initiative that focuses on publication, writing, editing and translation as an extension of art practice. Poly:be Press is a new imprint that catalyses projects traversing the digital and analogue, including translations, hybrid works, and material archiving of digital ephemera.
We’re excited for the second annual LA Art Book Fair, the west coast companion of Printed Matter’s NY Art Book Fair. For the fair, we’ll be presenting rare and out-of-print books on art, design, architecture along with artists’ books and an extensive collection of artists’ ephemera from the New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver, BC gallery and art scenes of the 1960s and 70s, primarily relating to the fields of pop,
minimalist, conceptual and land art, and including exhibition documents, posters, mail art, flyers and announcements. We hope to see you in LA!
