The Book Talk is a member organized series featuring a diverse group of artists, academics, and people developing critical dialogue around books.
This Book Talk will feature Photographer Delphine Fawundu, who will discuss the making of the book, MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora. The book is an exclusive and commemorative publication committed to establishing and representing a collective voice of women photographers of African descent. The inaugural issue of MFON features over 100 women photographers across the Diaspora.
The Center for Book Arts promotes active explorations of both contemporary and traditional artistic practices related to the book as an art object. The Center seeks to facilitate communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary visual and literary arts, while being a model organization locally, nationally, and internationally within the field. We achieve this through exhibitions, classes, public programming, literary presentations, opportunities for artists and writers, publications, and collecting.
