Celebrate Alexis Iammarino Art Catalogue "Hole History: Origins Of The American-Style Donut"
recently published art catalogue "Hole History: Origins Of The
American-Style Donut" with readings from the catalogue, slideshow, video
screening and of course, donut eating!
The story of Captain Hanson Gregory of Rockport, who is said to have
invented the hole-in-the-donut, inspired Iammarino’s Hole History
exhibition and its catalogue.
This event is part of a 2018 Kindling Fund project, awarded to Iammarino
and collaborator Maeve O’Regan to design and publish the catalogue from
the 2016 exhibition curated by Iammarino called “Hole History: Origins
of the American-style Donut,” a collection of art, performance and
writing that responded to a claim that the hole-in-the-donut was
singularly invented by a 19th-century sea captain from Rockport, Maine.
Light refreshments, of course including donuts, will be served.
Support For The Exhibition Catalogue, is Provided by The Kindling Fund,
A Grant Program Administered By SPACE Gallery As Part Of The Andy Warhol
Foundation For The Visual Arts Regional Regranting Network.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact
the library at (207) 354-2453.
