Book Release Party

T: 212.643.3152

Please join us this coming Thursday, 6-8 PM for the Book Release Party of the long-awaited publication, The Chadwick Family Papers, published by Periscope Press.

In 2004 the duo Jimbo Blachly and Lytle Shaw began to do installations and performances in which they pretended to be the editors of the papers of the Chadwicks, a mysterious family of connoisseurs, dandies and amateur historians. The plausible and the fabricated switch cushioned seats as the editors attempt to unravel the byzantine history of the Chadwick dynasty. This book includes numerous photographs of the Blachly-Shaw assault on the art world, along with a judicious selection of the Chadwick papers now known to be extant.

About the Authors
JIMBO BLACHLY is an artist based in New York City whose work has been widely exhibited in Europe and the United States. LYTLE SHAW is a writer who teaches American literature at New York University.
