Reading Performance by Christopher Clary: Saturday June 11th at 2pm

This spring, BAXTER ST at CCNY will host the 6th annual Zine & Self-Published Photo Book Fair on June 11th and 12th, with the opening reception on June 10th from 6 to 8 pm. This year the Fair is curated by Anouk Kruithof and will include special installations by Bob Civil, Curtis Hamilton, Devin Morris, and Peter Puklus. On Saturday the 11th at 2 pm Christopher Clary will read from his zine Sorry to dump on you like this.zip. In an interview for The Photographs’ Gallery Blog Kruithof says: “For me a book is an experience, an intimate meeting as well. A book has no closing hours. Photography and the book format goes naturally hand in hand, so to me it has always been part of my practice to make works of which the final outcome is the book. My books are photo-based artist books. So the book is the work basically. I like to walk through a book with my fingers and my mind, the same way I explore the world when traveling.” Assisting Kruithof with the fair is Zine Fair Coordinator Izabela Jurcewicz. Join us over the 10th-12th weekend to see an exciting array of self-published works that push the boundaries of traditional book-making today.
