The Wisconsin Book Festival Presents EVER YOUR FRIEND

A reading and book signing with Anna Campbell 

Thursday, March 26, 2015, 5 PM

Curatorial Lab Space, Elvehjem Building, UW-Madison

Organized in conjunction with the closing celebration of

The Wet Archive: History, Desire, and Photography's Liquid Intelligence

The exhibition closes April 5! Come celebrate the show and Wet Archiveartist Anna Campbell’s book Ever Your Friend (Issue Press, 2014). Ever Your Friend presents a collection of images abstracted from the photo collection of the Lesbian Herstory Archives in Brooklyn, NY. Compiled during a month in residence at the Archive, artist Anna Campbell has modified the images, isolating only hands, bare arms, and any objects they may hold. Campbell's selective editing prompts the viewer to fill in the gaps.

Books and broadsides available for purchase onsite.

This event is presented by The Wisconsin Book Festival and sponsored by The Department of Art History, The Department of Design Studies, The Department of Art & The Wet Archive Curatorial Team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
