Please join Talon Books and READ Books at the Charles H. Scott Gallery for the launch of textual vishjuns: image and text in the work of bill bissett by Carl Peters and novel by bill bissett both published by Talon Books.


Carl Peters

Will read from textual vishyuns, which attests that bill bissett's entire body of work consists of an integrated aesthetic praxis of "the whole art"; that his drawings, paintings, collages and assemblages challenge artistic conventions of visual language in the same way that his poetry challenges linguistic conventions of syntax and grammar to escape the strictures of Western modes of binary and hierarchical thought and perception.
