Lucy Raven: Low Relief

Book Launch

Thursday, July 20, 2017

Low Relief combines artist Lucy Raven’s multi-year research into industrial image making, conducted in part through a series of EMPAC residencies, and the artworks that resulted—RP31 (2012), Curtains (2014), and the EMPAC-commissioned cinema event Tales of Love and Fear (2015)—into a monographic book designed by EMPAC graphic artist Eileen Baumgartner.

Low Relief is introduced by EMPAC’s Director Johannes Goebel and includes essays by Victoria Brooks, Richard Birkett, Pablo de Ocampo, Joshua Clover, and Corrina Pepion, as well as the transcripts of Raven’s three illustrated lectures: Low Relief, On Location, and Motion Capture, presented between 2012-2016 at The Hammer (Los Angeles), Portikus (Frankfurt), The Kitchen (New York), South London Gallery (London), and EMPAC.

Following the book launch join us for a screening of Starship Troopers with special effects master Phil Tippett.
