Bookbinding workshop at threewalls, Thursday May 16th, 6-9 PM (119 N Peoria)
Utilizing the bookbinding station currently installed at threewalls as part of Marissa Lee Benedict’s solo exhibition (MULTIPLICES), the artist will host a bookbinding workshop free and open to the public from 6-9 PM on May 16th. Having written a text discussing her research process as she travels to five sets of sites in the Chicago metropolitan area, Benedict self-published 250 copies of a 160 page text titled MULTIPLICES that acts as a key to the sculptural assemblages occupying the gallery walls and floors. The bookbinding workshop will consist of demonstrations on the simple process of thermobinding, silk-screening and book trimming. Copies of MULTIPLICES will be available to bind, and are for sale. Attendees of the workshop are welcome to bring their own books (of any shape and size) to be thermobound on site.
And stay tuned for a reading program on May 30 in conjunction with MULTIPLICES as well.
