1 IMAGE 1 MINUTE at the LA ART BOOK FAIR!
Saturday, January 31, 2pm
As part of the CABC – Contemporary Artists’ Books Conference with Olivian Cha and Micol Hebron, Project X and X-TRA are proud to announce another of the beloved 1 IMAGE 1 MINUTE events!
TICKETS for 1 IMAGE 1 MINUTE are free, but required.
Limited Tickets Available.
Fifty artists, curators, writers and members of the art-book community will give a one-minute lecture on a single image of their choosing. The resulting series of presentations offers an engaging survey of the way we interpret and relate to the static image. Based on Micol Hebron’s column in X-TRA, the concept was inspired by Agnès Varda’s television series Une minute pour une image (1983).
