Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now

In lieu of a catalog, The Santa Barbara Museum of Art invited you to take this journal as you left the exhibit.

You are invited to select the title of your journal by blacking out everything else from a page of Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities.

My journal title: “I describe brawling streets smelling of leather, a free life and a refined civilization.”
