Open Space brings together chapbooks published by 12 renowned micro-presses from the 1950s to the present day with original publications by poets Gwendolyn Brooks, Allen Ginsberg, Lyn Hejinian, Charles Olson, Jack Spicer and many others. The books on display were designed and printed in collaboration with poets and visual artists, and range from gritty DIY photocopied pamphlets to finely crafted letterpress editions. A brief talk by curator Michael Slosek will begin at 6:15pm. Light refreshments will be served.
