Libby Leshgold Gallery

The Western Front, REV, and READ Books at the Charles H. Scott Gallery are pleased to present the launch of Recipes for an Encounter. The book takes its impetus from Kits for an Encounter, an earlier exhibition co-curated by Candice Hopkins and Marisa Jahn that explored artist-made “kits” designed to instigate an encounter. Recipes for an Encounter functions as both a curatorial extension of the exhibition and a catalyst for other encounters.

Recipes for an Encounter is edited by Marisa Jahn, Candice Hopkins and Berin Golonu and features contributions by Lisa Anne Auerbach, Adrian Blackwell, The Center for Tactical Magic, Max Goldfarb, Karen Hakobian, Marissa Jahn, Molly Keogh, Janice Kerbel, LIGNA, Kristina Lee Podesva and Alan McConchie, Jamie O'Shea, Vahida Ramujkic, Francisco J. Ricardo, Noa Treister, Matt Volla and Sharif Waked.

Recipes For an Encounter is published by the Western Front, Vancouver, and REV, New York, 2009.
