  • Time
  • Led By Vivian Sming
  • Where Letterform Archive

Our Curatorial Fellow, Vivian Sming, will present highlights from her new acquisitions for the Archive that are in dialogue with our existing collection. We’ll see unusual letterforms created by bookworms, modular typography, unique and collaborative reading experiences, and books by contemporary artists using language in their work.

This event will be held on-site at Letterform Archive in San Francisco where attendees will have an opportunity to meet Sming and Archive staff, while viewing the objects up close. We will also stream the presentation live for online attendees anywhere in the world.

A coinciding pop-up exhibition will be on view in the Archive’s reading room February 2–26.
