Ulises Carrión (1941–1989) was one of the most remarkable artists and writers of the second half of the twentieth century. Part of a generation of artists that challenged the boundaries separating visual arts, literature, music, and performance, Carrión worked in a wide range of media: artists’ books, sound poetry, performance art, mail art, video art, theoretical writing, and exhibitions. Beyond publishing his own innovative artists’ books, Carrión fostered collaboration amongst experimental artists through operating his own bookstore-gallery and engaging deeply with the international mail art network. Carrión’s work is the focus of a new exhibition at Milberg Gallery in Firestone Library, “Ulises Carrión: Bookworks and Beyond,” as well as an accompanying exhibition catalog.

The panelists represent the exhibition’s curatorial team and two contributors to the catalog. In celebration of the release of the “Ulises Carrión: Bookworks and Beyond” catalog, the panelists will share insights from their research, which draws on art history, media studies, poetics, and archival studies to place Carrión’s work in a new light.

Lunch will be provided.
