[BKARTS] Artists' Book course at the Tate



http://www.tate.org.uk/britain/eventseducation/bookart.htm

The concept of artists' books as independent art works and as an
established art form developed during the twentieth century. During the
1950s and 1960s artists such as Sol LeWitt, Ed Ruscha, Dieter Roth and
the Fluxus Collective used Artists' Books to express their work and to
investigate the book form. Artists' Books continue to be a major
inter-disciplinary medium within contemporary art practice. This weekend
workshop explores modern and contemporary examples of Artists' Books
within Tate's Collection through practical sessions, lectures and
demonstrations. Students will produce their own Artists' Book and
discuss their work with practicing book artist Deb Rindl. Practical
sessions are supported by lectures by Tate Librarian, Maria White, and
Tate Archivist, Adrian Glew which will unveil treasures from the Tate's
Collection of Artists' Books.

There will also be a special display by students on the Book Arts MA at
Camberwell College of Art and participants will have a chance to view
and discuss their work.
