Storytime publication launch

Gallery 1C03 is pleased to partner with McNally Robinson Booksellers to launch our newest publication Storytime: Glen Johnson and Leslie Supnet. The launch will take place at McNally Robinson Grant Park location on June 20 at 7:00 p.m. It will include a performative reading by Johnson.

This handsomely illustrated 60 page publication documents the works created by writer/performance artist Johnson and visual artist/animator Supnet for their Storytime exhibition at Gallery 1C03 last fall. It features Johnson and Supnet's paired stories and drawings that replicate children's-style books but with a subtly adult tone. Storytime also includes a critical essay by Tom Kohut which employs Gertrude Stein's unit of composition to consider the unexpected trajectories of Johnson and Supnet's work.
