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The Saddest Thing Is That I Have Had to Use Words: A Madeline Gins Reader, a collection of Gins’s long out-of-print or unpublished writings.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.

✼ natalie’s upstate weather report:

july 31, 2023 — It has been a wet and gray summer all around. Poet Keith Waldrop passed away a few days ago. Siglio had the immense honor to publish Keith’s luminescent collages—edited by the dearest of Siglio friends, artist-writer Robert Seydel—and the great luck to enter Keith and his soulmate Rosmarie’s rich and multifarious world of poetry, translation, publishing, community. No, not world; rather, galaxy, universe, cosmos. Their collaboration on the insistently vanguard Burning Deck Press chartered the outer reaches, yielding an indispensable map for siglio—and many other small presses.
