We are extremely pleased to introduce local architect, poet, and designer Leonid Osseny as the next featured artist in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. From now until April 5th, his eye-popping exhibit 36 Views of Ulysses will be on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch. For 36 Views of Ulysses, Mr. Osseny created a stunningly original collection of inventive graphic works that interpret scenes from James Joyce’s landmark novel as well as 8 poster installations subtitled “Inner Monologue” that explore Joyce’s work in relation to that of Sergey Eisenstein and Stanley Kubrick. Recognized internationally, the exhibit was part of both the North American James Joyce Conference in 2001 and Dublin’s 19th International James Joyce Symposium in 2004. So don’t miss 36 Views of Ulysses right here at EPL, and make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in March for a featured interview with Mr. Osseny and info on how you can meet the artist himself. Stay tuned.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
