Join us for an amusing and constructive conversation with Simon Blattner about print, handmade books, and curating.
Blattner will discuss how he put together an exhibition of Handmade Books from Mexico. Before going to Mexico, Blattner did not know any of the artists that were featured in the exhibition. His hectic travels around Mexico will make you laugh and hopefully inspire you to make your own artistic leap of faith. Prior to curating exhibitions, Simon learned paper making at Magnolia Editions and owned a print studio, Eastside Editions. His lessons are a primer for how to lose your mind and money, make some great intaglio prints and books, and craft beautiful pieces of art.
Blattner has made a vow to never leave the world of handmade books and print. He wrote of his adventures in Mexico and the resulting exciting exhibition in his book "Libros de Artista" published last year.
