7:00pm
National Book Launch: Documentado/Undocumented Ars Shamanica Performatica  (Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre, ...))

Spoken word performance by Felicia Rice, Moving Parts Press

Discussion about artist books by Diana Rivera, MSU Libraries

Light refreshments to follow performance

A traveling case for apprentice shamans
A reliquary for imaginary saints
A toolbox for self-transformation
A quiet call to heal yourself with fetishes and antidotes
A border kit to face the uncertainty of future crossings
A new project, seven years in the making

What is it exactly? A stage for an intimate one-on-one performance? An unusual video screening room? A personal multi-media altar? A "vanity" used for preparing for a performance?
It is all these things and it is also an original book, a performative artists' book in search of a new format
and a new audience. Each element stands by itself, but together they form an indescribable whole.

Felicia Rice is a book artist, typographer, letterpress printer, publisher, and educator. She has collaborated with visual artists, performing artists and writers under the Moving Parts Press imprint since 1977. Work from the Press has been included in exhibitions from AIGA Annual Book Shows in New York and Frankfurt to the Victoria & Albert Museum. Her books are held in numerous collections including Stanford University, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Bodleian Library, Oxford. She has been the recipient of multiple awards, most recently the Rydell Visual Arts Fellowship, and grants from the NEA, CAC and the French Ministry of Culture.
