[BKARTS] Event at British Library -- Ian Tyson

An Artists' Book / An Artist's Book / An Artists Book... 
Ian Tyson 

Monday 25th June 2007 6pm
at the British Library Conference Centre, Meeting room 4
96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB 

The British Library has recently acquired a collection of books
by the book artist Ian Tyson. To mark the acquisition the
artist will give a talk about his developing practice over the years.

The raison d'etre of the livre d'artiste, or "artists book", as a
genre has changed radically from its emergence at the end
of the Nineteenth Century.  The work of Ian Tyson shows the
initial influences of that genre and his subsequent departures
from them. Ian's work, now represented by the Ian Tyson
Collection at the British Library, is a specific response to
Twentieth Century developments in the relationship between
word and image. This illustrated talk by the artist himself wil
describe a forty year involvement with making books.

The talk will be followed by a drinks reception.

Attendance is free, but please register your name with
Teresa Harrington at the British Library.
