datum: zaterdag 23 september 2017
Join Looiersgracht 60 for a book launch celebrating the new limited-edition publication "Imprinted Mater" on Saturday, September 23, 2017. Art critic Lucy Cotter will introduce the book, followed by a conversation between Lucy Cotter and artist Aimée Zito Lema.
As well as being a non-profit exhibition space, Looiersgracht 60 is an independent publishing house, regularly producing limited-edition paperbacks to accompany its exhibition programme. In close collaboration with Aimée Zito Lema, we have produced a publication that explores her work and the relationship between memory and image.
It comprises written contributions from a number of experts from various disciplinary backgrounds: Sohrab Mohebbi (an LA-based curator), Horacio González (a writer and the former director of the National Library of Argentina), Maria Barnas (a poet and artist) and Marcelo Percia (a writer and psychoanalyst). The publication also features a foreword written by Soraya Notoadikusumo and Nadine Snijders (directors of Looiersgracht 60) and boasts an insightful image section comprising multiple research images, images of work in progress and new works made specifically for this publication. The book’s beautiful design by Studio Veronica Ditting has exquisitely brought all these unique elements together. We hope that this publication will contribute to a fuller understanding of Zito Lema’s achievements so far and will further the scope of her important oeuvre in the future.
Aimée Zito Lema (1982, Amsterdam) is a Dutch-Argentine visual artist currently living and working in Amsterdam. Her work has been exhibited at multiple locations including the Kunstmuseum Bonn (2016), the Centre Pompidou in Paris (2016) and the 11th Gwangju Biennale in South Korea (2016).
Lucy Cotter (1973, Ireland) turned to writing, curating and cultural theory after a successful career as an artist. Her writing is widely published internationally and Cotter has curated at numerous presitigious institutions both at home and abroad. In collaboration with artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh, Cotter curated the Dutch pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale 2017, presenting a projected entitled Cinema Olanda.
