Book Signing: Wig Heavier than a Boot

  • Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair @ MoMA PS1 22-25 Jackson Avenue Long Island City, NY, 11101 United States (map)

Photographer David Johnson and poet Philip Matthews will sign copies of Wig Heavier than a Boot (Kris Graves Projects, 2019) at the NY Art Book Fair. The book, designed by Amy Thompson of Paper Boat Studios, brings together 34 photographs by David and 26 poems by Philip. Revealing Petal—a drag consciousness as whom Philip manifests to write, and David photographs—the project crosses art-making rituals with isolated performances within domestic spaces and pastoral landscapes.
