The British artist Tom Phillips will be participating in MASS MoCA’s Book Club on April 3rd at 6pm.  Phillips will be there to talk about his work and artistic process more generally. Phillip’s work, A Humument, a collage created over the text of WH Mallock’s 1892 novel A Human Document, is currently on view in WCMA’s Picture: Literature exhibition. If you haven’t already, come check out A Humument through June 9th. The interactive display features a digital version of A Humament from an iPad app that Phillips created himself, as well as images of the physical pages from the altered text.
