Vernissage de l'exposition "Paris, a Poem | Georgia Fee Residency 2017"

Wednesday, August 23, 2017 19:30-21:30 CEST

Join printer and publisher Shoshana Kessler this Wednesday at Berkeley Books of Paris for a vernissage and discussion of her project reprinting Hope Mirrlees' modernist masterwork, "Paris: A Poem." Previews of her new artist books will be on display.

Hope Mirrlees was a modernist writer, poet, and translator in Paris at the turn of the twentieth century. In 1920, the Hogarth Press-Virginia and Leonard Woolf's printing press & publishing house-published her experimental poem "Paris." Limited to 175 copies, the poem passes through the city in a single day, gazing upon the galleries, Parisian institutions, the nightlife, bars, cinema, streets.

Shoshana Kessler, as recipient of ArtSlant's Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency, has been undertaking a contemporary re-printing and tracing of "Paris: A Poem." Using a mixture of contemporary and traditional techniques, she has replicated Woolf's printing of the poem, re-printing in various ways and creating a collection of artist books. In addition to re-printing the poem, Kessler has been walking the city of Paris, retracing Mirrlees' steps.
