Combining conversation and hands-on exercises, this lecture-workshop will guide participants through heavy and light aspects of bookmaking.

About this Event

Artists' books are a heavy business -- both figuratively and conceptually. In her 7 years working around artists' books, artist Chang Yuchen has worn her wrists out carrying boxes and boxes of books. Combining conversation and hands-on exercises, this lecture-workshop will guide participants through a contemplation on the heavy elements associated with bookmaking (the archive, the administration, the inventory) as well as lighter aspects such as dream, memory and imagination.

Chang Yuchen is an artist based in New York. She works in an interdisciplinary manner -- writing as weaving, drawing as translation, clothing as portable theater, commerce as everyday revolution (see Use Value). By constantly entering and exiting each medium, she strolls against the category of things, the labor division among people. Yuchen was an artist in residence at MASS MoCA (North Adams), Offshore (Sabah), MAD Museum (New York), Bananafish Books (Shanghai) and Textile Art Center (Brooklyn). She has shown/performed her works at UCCA Dune, Taikwun Contemporary, Abrons Art Center, Para Site, Salt Projects, Assembly Room and etc. Yuchen teaches through Center for Book Arts, Printed Matter, Asia Art Archive in America, CUE Art Foundation and more.
