Surprise! I made the difficult trip from San Francisco to Europe to import my books to the European Union. After more than six months of researching the travel restrictions, and finally more than two months of collecting all manner of paperwork necessary, I took my mandatory Covid exam, filed my work permit, received special permissions to import goods and work safely in the art / cultural economic sphere – I was cleared to fly to France.
Mission: Color x Color book release in Europe.
I’ve quarantined for 3 days so far, and will continue for 8 days total. I’m in a work bubble with proper Covid protocols. Masks and hand washing. I’m in an open rural area. There is no population density here. I feel safe, and I’ll work to stay safe. France has a scientific approach in the context of a democracy which I respect.
I will be making an online release IN AMERICA of the second printing my career spanning book, “Color x Color: The Sperry Archive, 1980-2020” on Thursday, October 15, 2020. HERE
I may stop the online sale at a certain number, and restart soon again (estimate in a week) to keep the orders shipping smoothly. These orders are US ONLY and will be shipped from Hangar 18 in Oakland, USA.
I will be making a limited book release event, following safe Covid protocols, at l’Oeil Ouvert Gallery, 1 rue Lucien Sampaix 75010 Paris on October 22, 2020, time to be announced. I will be there in person! More Information
