Hanning final

 

Join us on Friday evening for a special performance by artist John Hanning. The lights will go out at 7:30. Seating is limited – Do not miss this! A special edition of the artist book is available, 25 copies.

Unfortunate Male chronicles John Hanning‘s diagnosis with AIDS with his medical records, photographs and memory text. Hanning’s book is a meditation on memory. Why do we remember some things and not others? Do memories sustain us or ruin us? Is it possible to rewrite or reenact memories? How do photographs and medical forms – relics of sorts – facilitate or challenge our ability to remember and tell stories?

John Hanning is a Brooklyn based artist and writer. He connects places and ideas – pictorially and conceptually, composing his personal iconography as he traces his life to the present. He is the author of Unfortunate Male.
