Dashwood Books announces Black Threads from Meng Chiao by Justine Kurland and John Yau
Tuesday, Aug 18, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
In a true collaboration, Justine Kurland and John Yau shared photographs and poems throughout the making of Black Threads from Meng Chiao, each reacting to the work of the other many times over. The result is a revelation for each: Kurland’s intimate, almost claustrophobic, interior black-and-white images offer a new side of an artist known for large-format color pictures of landscapes both peopled and not; Yau’s spare, precise language is given room to reveal multiple layers of meaning over the three distinct formal sections that comprise the title poem.
A special Signing Version of the book with a limited-edition gold cover will be available only at the signing, on a first-come, first-served basis.
