[BKARTS] Angela Lorenz Fall Activities



Dear Book Arts List,
If you are interested in the work of Angela Lorenz, please see the below message for upcoming activities in the US this fall.



New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies http://www.scps.nyu.edu/departments/course.jsp?catId=11&courseId=80803

The Artist's Book: Learning the Essentials, Viewing the Collections
Taught by Angela Lorenz
October 12 & 13, 10am to 4pm
X03.8041 / Non­Credit / $325

Since the 1970s, artist's books--works of art realized in the form of a book--have been at the forefront of the art world. Artist's books employ a wide range of forms, including paper engineering, unusual typographic design, and fascinating bookbindings. This limited-enrollment workshop offers a unique opportunity to view some of the best artist's books being made today and lets you explore the process and practice of this exciting art form. The instructor, a highly recognized creator of artist's books, focuses on a range of techniques, materials, and formats--including letterpress printing and typographic design, bookbinding structures, relief printing, and composition. Participants view and handle extensive examples of artist's books.

From blocks of ice to latex to chewing gum, Angela Lorenz has made limited-edition artist?s books out of an astounding array of materials. Equally staggering is the amount of knowledge she manages to incorporate into each of her intimate volumes. Merging a conceptual approach with exquisite craftsmanship, Lorenz?s works are far more than a simple union of word and image. Exceptionally witty, richly layered, and the result of painstaking research, her books serve as visual scaffolding on which and in which she places cultural and historical information.

Focusing on artist?s books that reference literature and are comprised of materials as unlikely as paper jeans and silk-screened ties, the exhibition will feature a number of the artist?s most innovative and thought-provoking books as well as process materials for these objects. This exhibition will also create a provocative dialogue with the other shows being presented at the Addison this fall, all of which variously deal with the idea of word and image.

This exhibition has been generously funded by the Winton Family Exhibition Fund and the Edward E. Elson Artist-in-Resident Fund.
