[BKARTS] "The Consistency Of Shadows - Exhibition Catalogs As Autonomous Works Of Art"



********
The Betty Rymer Gallery/School of the Art Institute of Chicago is currently
in the process of preparing for an exhibition titled "The Consistency Of
Shadows - Exhibition Catalogs As Autonomous Works Of Art", which will be
open in February 2003.  Curator Doro Boehme is selecting from a multitude
of formats and aesthetic approaches by artists, galleries, museums, etc.
that attempt to expand the common function of the catalog as mere memory
and inventory of a show into its own work of art

For this event a catalog will be produced with original contributions by
Christian Boltanski (artist, Paris/France), Mary Jane Jacob (writer and
independent curator, Chicago), Barbara Moore (art historian, publisher and
rare-book dealer, also proprietor of Bound & Unbound), Anthony Elms (art
critic and editor of WhiteWalls, Chicago) and Alan Cravitz (private
collector of artists' books and exhibition catalogs, Chicago).

The book and CD-ROM will be housed in a specifically designed and
vacuformed acrylic box and can be purchased NOW for the price of $ 32.-
plus sh/h ($ 8.- first item, $ 2.50 each additional copy)

For details and images of the mock-up please go to
http://www.artic.edu/saic/art/flasch/flasch_exhibit.html or
http://www.artic.edu/saic/art/flasch/exhibitcatalog.html

(It's well worth taking a quick look; the design of the item is rather
unconventional).

The item is being offered on a pre-subscription basis.
You can fax in or email your order and will receive a pro-forma invoice.
Please send in your order or any inquieries to Henrietta Zielinski,
Bibliographer, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, under
hzielinski@artic.edu or phone her at 312-899-5099 (or fax her at
312-899-1465).

Actual production of the catalog is currently under way but you will not
obtain your copy until opening of the show, as installation shots will be
added to the CD-ROM.
Thank you for supporting this project and, please, come see the show if
you're in town.
