MFA Photography 2014 alumni, Magali Duzant will be having a Book Launch & Reading of her new book “Light Blue Desire: A Manual to the Color Blue” at Printed Matter on Thursday, February 1st from 6PM – 8PMLight Blue Desire (2018) investigates the power, failure, and fluidity of language. The project, in its current incarnation as an artist book, lyrically maps the amorphous definition and meaning of the word blue across languages. The collection of idioms reveals a compendium of contradictions; concepts around a color that is both high and low, peaceful and pornographic, melancholic and manipulative, and consistently voted the world’s favorite color. How and why does blue seep into our speech, color our thoughts, lap into our languages?
