Carrie Moyer Book Signing

Wed, Dec 1 / 6–8 pm

Join Carrie Moyer, Johanna Fateman, Lauren O’Neil-Butler, and Katy Siegel for a celebration and book signing of their new publication, Carrie Moyer, published by RizzoliElecta. The monograph's deep dive into Moyer’s painting practice, in particular her work of the past decade, is enriched by the inclusion of the artist’s agitprop from the 1990s, including Dyke Action Machine! (DAM!), one of the first lesbian public art projects.

The celebration takes place in the exhibition Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times, the first major museum survey of the artists’ collaborative and individual works.
