MFA Photo Alum Magali Duzant announces the release of her first artist book, I Looked & Looked, published by Conveyor Editions. The book will be launching at the NY Art Book Fair at PS1 this week ( Sept 18-20 ).
She’ll be doing a signing on Saturday, September 19th at 3 pm ( Conveyor Editions, Table Q05 ).
“The book has been a labor of love and I’m so excited to be able to share it. On September 25, 1923, Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz wrote each other love letters containing a description of the full moon. Inspired by the synchronicity of this romantic exchange, I asked twenty individuals to describe the full moon on October 29, 2012, from their vantage points across the country. The surprise of Hurricane Sandy led to wildly varying accounts of a single sky. I Looked & Looked weaves these narratives together with a series of my images in a lyrical reflection on the natural world as a source of interconnectedness.”
The book will be available for purchase here : www.conveyoreditions.com
An official release party will coincide with the 3 year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy next month, details and invitation to come.
In addition, she will have a limited edition print available at Conveyor’s table.
Upcoming Exhibitions in Australia
Duzant will also be in Australia for two exhibitions in Tasmania and Sydney as well as a Visiting Artist position at Parramatta Artist Studios, and running an abbreviated version of Live Streaming Sunset for the Parramatta Lanes Festival alongside video work by the Australian artist Ella Condon.
