SATURDAY, 10/15 Book Release:
<> <> by Marta Rodriguez Maleck, 4 to 5 p.m.
During 2021, while in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Marta Rodriguez Maleck created an installation for the New Orleans Museum of Art and the New Orleans Public Library which invited people to answer the question: “What must die (institutionally, personally, relationship-wise, belief-wise) and what will thrive in its wake?” This publication shares the participants’ responses in written form without delineating speakers from one another, resulting in a collective authorship of that moment.
SUNDAY, 10/16, 11 to 2 p.m. Signing of books from Biblioteca Popular Bruce Lee, the collective that Antenna staff member Monica Mejia Restrepo is part of.
Biblioteca Popular Bruce Lee is a small publishing collective working in Cali, Colombia and New Orleans, USA. Founded in 2016, we make handcrafted books in short run editions (between 25 to 100 copies), focusing on contemporary writing, exhumations and translation. Biblioteca Popular Bruce Lee is an ongoing mutant and decentralized library project with a DIY attitude, trying to foster collaboration between different people, conceiving bookmaking as a shared experience and as an expansion and colluding of reading, writing, translation, illustration, pedagogy and art.
