The DART Board: | San Francisco

By Peggy Roalf   Wednesday July 10, 2019

The San Francisco Art Book Fair (SFABF)—the three-day event that showcases the Bay Area’s lasting engagement with everything counterculture, returns next week to Minnesota Street Project (MSP) for its fourth edition. Organized by Colpa, Minnesota Street Project, and Park Life, SFABF presents a spectrum of publications, from artists’ books, catalogues, monographs, periodicals, zines, to antique ephemera, and multiples, from more 100 publishers, dealers, artists, and galleries. For 2019, thirteen international exhibitors join the party that includes thirty exhibitors new to the fair. Info Above, Left: April Dawn Alison, Untitled (n.d.); right: April Dawn Alison, Untitled (n.d.); images courtesy of SFMOMA and MACK

Among the highlights of the public programs, which include talks, book launches, special projects and signings are:

Saturday, July 2012-6pm
Over and Over, Again and Againby Allen Ruppersberg and Thomas Cvikota (2018); Directed by Lucas Cvikota; Soundtrack by Allen Ruppersberg 
Over and Over, Again and Again, documents the typewritten index cards that accompany a collection of 78 rpm records donated by Barrie H. Thorpe to the Batavia Public Library in Illinois. The cards identify the artist/performer, date and title of each recording from Thorpe’s collection along with anecdotal information and his personal commentary. The Thorpe Collection of 48,000 78's was the first major donation to the Internet Archive’s Great 78 Project. The accompanying soundtrack is a collage of movie soundtracks, sound effects, experimental music, musique concrete, pop songs, and miscellaneous recordings. The screening will show a section of the 13-hour work-in-progress film.

Saturday, July 20, 2-3pm
April Dawn Alison, with Andrew Masullo and Erin O’Toole

April Dawn Alison was published by MACK to accompany an exhibition of the same name now on view at SFMOMA. The book features previously unseen Polaroids made over the course of thirty years by April Dawn Alison, the feminine persona of male photographer Alan Shaefer, based in Oakland. Erin O’Toole, curator of the exhibition and editor of the book, will discuss Alison’s work with the painter Andrew Masullo, who gave Alison’s archive to the museum.
