Marvin/Kress collaboration at CUE
2-UP is a monthly series that pairs an artist with a writer to “produce a double-sided poster, distributed in editions of two.” The series was initiated by Adam Shecter and Joe Winter.
Marvin and Kress’s piece pairs a new Marvin poem, “Why I Am Afraid of Turning the Page,” with a “funereal composite photograph.” The back includes a photographed “tangle of kudzu vines.”
Previous collaborations include Monika Zarzeczna & Nathan Lee; Colleen Asper & Davina Semo; Zerek Kempf & Cathy Park Hong; Ben Dowell & Mores Mcwreath; Glen Fogel & Craig Kalpakjian; and Barbara Ess & Maximilian Goldfarb.
Yearly subscriptions to 2-UP are available for $40.
Thanks to Adam Shecter for all of the images and photos.
