7pm: A Discussion with Edward Sanders and Lost & Found: Series V editors Alex Wermer-Colan, Gabrielle Kappes, Kai Krienke, and Zohra Saed
Please join artist Edward Sanders as he discusses both his glyphic works and his personal archive, classified chronologically in banker boxes since the early sixties, and including hand-drawn glyphs, ephemera, magazine layouts, and daybooks on view as part of Seeking the Glyph, an exhibition curated by Ammiel Alcalay and Kendra Sullivan, from Lost & Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative. In addition, hear from Lost & Found Series V editors: Alex Wermer-Colan, Gabrielle Kappes, and Kai Krienke, and Zohra Saed as they discuss their own work editing previously unpublished texts unearthed from personal and institution archives around the world. Their forthcoming publications from Series V include William S. Burroughs’ cut-ups, Kathy Acker’s letters and an homage to LeRoi Jones, Jean Senac’s manifesto, written during the French-Algerian War, and Langston Hughes’ travelogues from Central Asia.
Lost & Found Series V will be available at the event for pre-publication purchase!
