Dec 6 at 6:30 pm, join students from Garrick Imatani's studio art class, Alternative Distribution, as they showcase the work that culminated their book, Semiotics of Babespace
The students produced this book during the course of the fall 2011 semester, then collaborated with Publication Studio and the Lewis & Clark College bookstore to publish and distribute copies. Throughout the semester, Imatani's students explored alternative means of exhibiting and distributing artworks, outside the context of gallery spaces. In addition to publishing a book of their artworks, the class collaborated with Watzek Library Digital Initiatives
to develop a web site, Alternative Distribution
, which displays the students' visual maps of Portland, OR.
Please join us in the Library Classroom for snacks, coffee, and a celebration of the semester's work in performance art, digital imaging, video, book arts, and public sculpture.
