About the talk

Join us tonight on zoom for a BookTalk by Eva Parra and recent Artist-in-Residence Oswaldo Garcia, as they share their artists’ book publishing practices.

Two risograph printing studios and publishers that started their projects in Latin America (Cali, Colombia and Querétaro, Mexico) talk about their projects and show us their books. They will tell us about the influence that their travels, fairs, and other meetings have had on their work and the points of convergence they find between their practices.

Eva Parra is a researcher, educator, and printer. She is part of the curatorial collective Indisciplinadas where she has developed exhibitions such as No room for books and soft [cover] revolution. She is the co-founder of Calipso Press, a printing studio, publishing label and artistic collective established in 2015 in Cali, Colombia.

Oswaldo García is a photographer, art conservator, and the editor, printer, and co-founder of Gold Rain—a Mexican publisher of artists’ books, which won Printed Matter’s Shannon Michael Cane Award for outstanding emerging book artists.

As part of Center for Book Arts ongoing BookTalk series—presentations related to the book arts curated and moderated by CBA Instructor Roni Gross—we are delighted to welcome Eva Parra and Oswaldo García for this discussion about printing and publishing in the tropics.
