Live at the Archive: The Visual Literature of Warren Lehrer
Warren Lehrer’s work is some of the most popular in the Archive’s visual language collection. For this special visit to San Francisco Lehrer will survey his journey as a writer, designer, performer, and practitioner of visual literature, including several collaborations with investigative journalist and author Dennis J Bernstein, host of KPFA's Flashpoints. Bernstein will then join Lehrer to present their new book and multimedia project, Five Oceans in a Teaspoon. A collection of short visual poems divided into 8 movements, the 300-page book sits at the center of a multi-tiered project that includes typographic animations, a traveling exhibit, and performance/readings.
Copies of Five Oceans in a Teaspoon will be available for sale at the event. A book signing by Lehrer and Bernstein will follow the talk.
Doors at 6:00pm. Presentation begins promptly at 6:30pm.
