events, 02/01/21

During Printed Matter’s first Virtual Art Book Fair, artist Paul Chan and writer Lucy Ives will discuss the writing, architecture, and life of Madeline Gins (1941–2014), a visionary interdisciplinary thinker and artist who, with her partner Arakawa, created the experimental architectural project Reversible Destiny, through which they sought to arrest mortality by transforming the built environment. Chan and Ives will explore related themes in critical theory, philosophy, and contemporary arts practice, as well as the editorial process for The Saddest Thing Is That I Have Had to Use Words: A Madeline Gins Reader, a collection of Gins’s long out-of-print or unpublished writings. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A.

The event is archived here on YouTube!
