Revisiting the Seventies symposium



Revisting the Seventies, Friday, August 14, 1998, 7:00 p.m.

a symposium led by Susan E. King and Anne Siberell
Book artists of the 70s developed unparalleled works of art, breaking
standards of both the traditional codex form and the text that lay between
its covers. Reknowned artists Susan King and Anne Siberell were there,
coaxing pages out of computer paper, pop-up forms and xerox machines,
unknowingly leading the wave of artists' books to come.
In conjunction with our current exhibition, Boundless: Liberating the Book
Form, Susan and Anne will moderate a discussion on the unanswered
social/political questions that led to their ideas, and the personal
stories behind the books with several of the Boundless artists as special
guests.
Don't miss this special opportunity to explore how experimentation and
critical thinking in the seventies led to artistic breakthroughs for book
artists everywhere! An evening you won't want to miss!
The San Francisco Center for the Book, at 300 de Haro in San Francisco, was
founded in 1996 as a nonprofit arts organization devoted to exploring the
arts of the book and the visible word. Call 415 565 0545 for further
information.
