A Chronicle of Lovers: Ellie Brown
September 23, 2009 - December 5, 2009

Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director

The Chronicle of Lovers project was started in homage to each of the men the artist has slept with. Each man has a book and a digital print of the book in his name. The books are based on her impressions, memories and experiences with each man, regardless of whether the experience was positive or negative. She has contacted the men she’s still in touch with to share her altered book version of their affair. The artist stresses that each book is an earnest evaluation of her memories and not in any way meant to degrade, attack, or humiliate the men.
