NOV 29 | Lecture: Maureen Cummins, Artist as Archivist. Free and open to the Public. John Carter Brown Library on the Brown University Main Green, MacMillan Reading Room, 6:00 p.m. Refreshments served.

Maureen Cummins will give a slide presentation of her work over the past two decades, which has involved the production of over thirty limited edition artist books. The artist will describe, with accompanying images, her working process, which has evolved from pirating the flea markets and dumpsters of New York City to working in numerous archives as an artist-in-residence. Cummins will also speak briefly about her initial delvings into the John Carter Brown Library collection.
