The Yale University Arts Library
is pleased to present the exhibition

“Poetics, Politics, and Song:
Contemporary Latin American/Latino(a) Artists’ Books”

Arts of the Book Collection
Sterling Memorial Library
120 High Street, Yale University
New Haven, CT

September 14 through November 27, 2000



This exhibition, featuring more than 20 contemporary artists’ books, explores
the diversity of themes and innovative uses of the book form displayed by a
group of dynamic artists originally from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, the
Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Many of the artists are also poets
or have produced work in collaboration with poets; poetics form an integral
part of the objects on display.  Other works document periods of political
turmoil in Brazil and Chile in the early 1970s, and more contemporary zones of
political discourse in the U.S.  The relationship between the featured artists’
books and popular music movements and song forms throughout Latin America is
also highlighted in the exhibition.

To celebrate the opening of the show, New York-based Argentinian artist Leandro
Katz will give a lecture entitled “SOLI-DARI-DAD”at 4 p.m. on September 14 in
the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall. A reception will follow from 5 to 7
p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Also in conjunction with the exhibition, Chicano artist Enrique Chagoya will
deliver a talk “Out of a Borderless Country” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 14,
at Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall.

The Arts of the Book Collection at Yale University is devoted to the history of
the book and all its attendant arts, including typography, calligraphy, book
binding, fine printing, graphic arts and book illustration.  Hours for the Arts
of the Book Collection are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
and Tuesdays and Thursdays, 1 to 5 p.m.
