Liz Larner, who “first encountered Chris Burden and his practice—a catalyst for Larner’s own use of scale and process—during her time at CalArts,” will give a talk on the late artist at GeffenContemporary at MOCA.*
For art and fashion lovers: In 2013 the artist Max Hooper Schneider created a silk scarf edition with P.P.M. Studio, Milan. We are offering the edition for purchase, as well as his last available original artwork from this series—dense, hand-drawn graphic lines recalling imaginative worlds and biologies—which will be part of a forthcoming book published by DoPe Press in September 2019.
In addition, we have invited some friends and family from Paris to share their publications and journals: ParaguayPress, MAY, and Profane.
