In sports, a round robin tournament is when each contestant is matched in turn against every other contestant. In this workshop, participants will act as the contestants matched in turn with circulating sheets of paper and will contribute using a variety of mark-making techniques (drawing, collage, frottage, tracing, transfers, stamping, etc.). As the papers circulate, we will fold them into sections to define the pages and create our own itineraries through the book. Participants will also bind their single-section books with a choice of simple cover attachments. Everyone will leave with a personalized, one-of-a-kind copy of the collaborative edition.

This workshop also includes a tour of Keith Smith at Home with the show’s curator, Amanda Bock, the Lynne and Harold Honickman Assistant Curator of Photographs.
