Star Black: The Collaged Accordion
January 20, 2010 - April 3, 2010

Untitled

Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director

Star Black is a poet and photographer who has created a series of large-scale accordion books that merge found texts, found photographs and ephemera (maps, hand-written letters, ledgers, etc.) to create surreal imagery. The exhibition is accompanied by individual collages and her own writings. Black says: "In many ways my collages are similar to poems but translated from visuals, taking symbols, textures and "found" words from else where and composing them within a page."
