ABOUT THE BOOK
AUTODIDACTICA displays Felicia Rice’s evolving aesthetic concerns (typographic, illustrative, structural) and exploration of content (poetry and performance scripts from a range of constituencies with a primary focus on Latino culture), from 1980-2014. It begins with an excerpt from Ellen Bass’ FOR EARTHLY SURVIVAL, and includes reproductions of the pages from five subsequent books.
Here Felicia’s drawings of her cars over the past decades are overprinted on a collage of encyclopedia pages. Each car has a story relating to the development of the press and its publications. These stories are presented in performance by Felicia Rice. Dates of upcoming performances to be announced.
