MONOMYTHS Perpetual Calendar

MONOMYTHS invited a diverse collection of artists, scholars and activists to revise Joseph Campbell’s conception of the hero’s journey through performance art, lectures, workshops and other offerings. The MONOMYTHS perception of the universal journey dispels the notion of the lone patriarchal figure on a conquest to vanquish his demonsā€“both inner and outerā€“in consideration of community, collectivity and collaboration. This perpetual calendar, beautifully designed by Lisa Kiss Design, documents the year-long MONOMYTHS journey.

Playing on the cyclical nature of the universal story, and the interconnectedness of the MONOMYTHS performance series, this 14-month perpetual calendar contains a main image and a detail from each project in the series taken by FADO photographer Henry Chan; as well as biographical information about each artist and a short description of each work.

Books & Ephemera

Books Red

Books about artists (and sometimes by artists) allow artists' work to be accessed by more people in more places. Artist books have the uncanny ability to both expand and convolute artistsā€™ practices. Unabashedly enjoying the pun, Books Red is a fragrance composed entirely of materials derived from sources that are red, at one moment in their lifespan. The fragrance is formulated to be impossibly ever-lasting, forever extending in all directions.
