American multi-media artist John Sims will be coming to Berkeley Books in Paris on Friday, February 10, 2017 to introduce his Wine-Poetry-Film project, SquareRoot of Love: Valentine’s Day in Paris. To kick off the series of events around the city, which includes wine tastings, a film screening and finale Valentine’ Day poetry presentation at Berkeley Books, the artist will give a talk about the project and introduce to Paris some of his recent VideoPoems.

John Sims is a Detroit native, who creates projects spanning the areas of mathematics, art, text, performance and media activism. His main projects are informed by the vocabulary of mathematical structure, the politics of sacred symbols and poetry as ally to the visual arts. He has lectured and exhibited both nationally and internationally and his work has been featured in Art in America, Sculpture, Transition, FiberArts, Guernica, Science News, CNN, NBCNews, New York Times, USA Today, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The Rumpus, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and the science journal Nature.
