Book Launch and Signing | Greg Parma Smith: My Ideas

Thurs | 6:30PM


Please join us at Swiss Institute for the launch of Greg Parma Smith: My Ideas. Conceived by Greg Parma Smith as an active archive, and published on the occasion of the artist’s solo museum survey at MAMCO, Genève in Spring 2017, this artist’s book juxtaposes a selection of recent paintings, 200 drawings (preparatory sketches, studies, simple patterns and designs, cartoons, notes, and doodles) realized by the artist from his youth years—when drawing was his favored medium of expression—and three essays by long-time followers of Parma Smith’s practice, namely artist and writer John Miller, art critic Kari Rittenbach, and musician and composer Hunter Hunt-Hendrix. Published by JRP | Ringier. Book design by Eric Wrenn.

Please RSVP to rsvp@swissinstitute.net.
