ERIKA VERZUTTI: NEW MOONS Book Launch, November 28, 2023 @ ISLAA, NY

🗓️ Tuesday, November 28, 2023 | 6:30 PM ET

📍 ISLAA, 142 Franklin Street, New York 🔗 RSVP here

A special evening to launch Erika Verzutti: New Moons, copublished by the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA); the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College (CCS Bard); and Dancing Foxes Press in December 2023. Taking an expansive view of the bold and influential practice of Brazilian artist Erika Verzutti, this book surveys work made over the past fifteen years through original scholarship and the artist’s own writings. In Verzutti’s art, moons recur as symbols of renewal and the multiple phases that a person or entity can pass through. Her work presents novel modes of perception by orbiting outside set systems of being—zooming out, in a telescopic sense, to the point where the relations here on Earth can be rethought.

Emerging from a 2023 exhibition at CCS Bard, the publication presents the artist’s writings alongside a selection of her works from the past fifteen years. This event features a reading by Erika Verzutti and presentations by editor Lauren Cornell and curators Ruba Katrib and Bernardo Mosqueira, who contributed to the book. The launch is open to the public and will take place at ISLAA’s new exhibition and program space in New York.
