NEW JERSEY BOOK ARTS SYMPOSIUM



!!!-----==---------=== anNOUNCEment ===--------------==---!!!



The 6th ANNUAL NEW JERSEY BOOK ARTS SYMPOSIUM, ORIGINAL COPIES : THE
BOOK ARTS AND REPRODUCTION, WILL BE held November 3, 2000, at the John
Cotton Dana Library, Rutgers--Newark, Newark, N.J. The morning will
feature four highly original New Jersey book artists--CLARE ROMANO,
BEATRICE CORON, MARCIA SANDMEYER WILSON and BERNARD MAISNER--whose
language and artistic strategies bridge the transgressive and the
celebratory, the vernacular and the proper, and who express a
contemporary sensibility within a variety of traditional artistic
mediums, including callagraphs,calligraphy, papercut and gold leaf.

The Symposium will begin with a workshop on making flexagons, led by
book artist and painter, Suellen Glashausser. Please bring several heavy
weight advertising pages from a magazine (the ones that are thicker than
the other pages with content); scissors and glue-stick will be provided.

Karen McDermott will then report about book life at The Gallery in South
Orange in the aftermath of the watershed exhibition of artists' books,
Beyond The Fold, which she organized. William J. Dane, will sample rare
and unusual books from the print and book arts collections of the Newark
Public Library, and introduce the artists.

Judith K. Brodsky will moderate the afternoon discussions, which will
shape up around three papers that interrogate ideas and assumptions
about originality and reproduction in various spheres of the book arts.
These will consist in papers by Barbara Balliet, "Reproducing Gender in
19th Century Books," Michael Scott Joseph, """"?: Originality and the
Problem of Time in Artists' Books," and Johanna Drucker, "Rhetoric of
Textuality:>From page space to e-space."

Original Copies will conclude with The Book Artists Jam, at which
Symposiasts will be free to exhibit, discuss and sell their own book art
at specially provided tables.

Everyone is invited to remain for the exhibition opening of Artists and
The Book: John Ross and Clare Romano, curated by Andrea
Honor, which will include the traditional and non-traditional book work
of the acclaimed artists, printmakers and authors of The Complete
Printmaker. Catalogs of the exhibition, printed by Grafiche Antiga, will
be available for attendees free of charge, and a limited number of
posters signed by Ross and Romano will be available for purchase. An
accompanying exhibition of the work of participating artists will also
be on view throughout the day.

As usual, vendors and product exhibitors will be on hand throughout the
day for your convenience.

The papers prepared for the Book Arts Symposium will be published in the

Rutgers University Libraries Journal. Those interested in obtaining
