Graduating Art History & Creative writing majors will be reading excerpts from their contributions to Compendium 2008: The Survival Edition. I will be reading an excerpt from a research paper on Hans Coper & Lucie Rie. Copies of The Survival Edition will be available at the Artspace during the reading, $10 for students and $20 for everyone else. This year’s edition of the Compendium comes packed in a kit, and includes some things you might need to survive. Fourteen contributing authors are featured in their own individual booklets, an audio compact disc with 11 tracks of magic, and one of Phyllis’ favorite poems are stuffed in the tin along with some other surprises.
