Title: Barbara Rosenthal: Journal Into Art
Description: $8 admission

“Journal Into Art” will be Barbara Rosenthal’s New York reprisal of her remarkable evening “Das Tagebuch gibt mir Ideen” last year at Létteratage Berlin. Her audio recordings, photo-DVDs, page projections and live reading from her life/art artist’s books Sensations, Homo Futurus, Soul & Psyche and the forthcoming Performance and Persona (all Visual Studies Workshop Press), will be followed by a talk about how her over 50 years of Journals have led to creative projects in art and writing. Especially notable is Rosenthal’s idiosyncratic use of variable handwritings, line configuration and page design, elements of which were shown in “The Page as Alternative Space,” curated by Martha Wilson at Franklin Furnace as long ago as 1982. You are encouraged to bring your own diaries for discussion, and we’ll conclude with a bit of improv leading to creative ideas and collaborations of your own.
Signed Books and CDs available for purchase.
