Oracular Transmissions weaves together three of the most recent collaborative projects Etel Adnan and Lynn Marie Kirby have completed through processes of exchange and translation: Back, Back Again to Paris (2013), The Alhambra (2016), and Transmissions (2017).
Etel Adnan is a Lebanese, Paris-based artist, essayist, and poet who was a longtime resident of Marin County and is known for her works inspired by her relationship to Mount Tamalpais.
Lynn Kirby is a San Francisco-based artist who makes films, videos, and site responsive installations, often with text based components.
The book also includes poems by Denise Newman, a friend to both Adnan and Kirby, and an introduction by Kadist Foundation curator Jordan Stein presenting their works and performances.
Design and typography by Brian Roettinger bring these numerous transmissions — video, performance, photography, email and other texts — together in one volume.
