In celebration of the publication of his newest book of essays, MFA Art Criticism and Writing Department Chair David Levi Strauss will have a book signing on Thursday, February 25. Discounted copies of Strauss’ book, From Head to Hand: Art and the Manual (Oxford University Press, 2010), will be available at the signing at Cue Art Foundation, 511 West 25 Street, from 5 – 8pm.
The February/March issue of Bookforum reviewed From Head to Hand, which deals with different artists’ manifestations of ideas into physical works of art. Bookforum writes, “Strauss makes a good case for paying heed to not only the objects before us but also to how they came into being.”
Strauss previously spoke about From Head to Hand in an interview with the Briefs.
