Update: Though A Secret Has Two Faces was originally supposed to ship mid-December, according to Art of Magic, the new expected ship date is mid-March.
Illusionist Derek DelGaudio and artist Glenn Kaino have been busy lately with their collaborative performance art project, A.Bandit. Most recently, they’ve hit big with their stage production of In & Of Itself, but the two have melded the art and magic worlds together with their work in a variety of art halls and venues, as well as a “conceptual magic shop” called The [Space] Between. Now, they’re compiling their work, along with interviews and discussions with some of their respective industries’ greatest performers, in a book called A Secret Has Two Faces.
From the official page hosted by publisher Art of Magic:
This multifaceted project is the latest collaboration between Glenn Kaino and Derek DelGaudio, who work together as the conceptual performance art duo A.Bandit to make magical art which has been exhibited and performed in venues that span a diverse range of cultural activities. A Secret Has Two Faces introduces their pioneering work in the fields of art and magic and contains interviews and stories from noteworthy practitioners within both fields. It will be a generous access point into the normally secret practice from which A.Bandit operates and will contain several secret elements and magical features that distinguish it as a type of performance, in and of itself.
The book will feature contributions by performance artist Marina Abramović, magicians Teller, Max Maven, and David Blaine, art curator Denise Markonish, and more. It’s currently available for pre-order from artofmagic.com for $95, and is expected to ship mid-December.
