[BKARTS] Exhibit, Goudy Lecture, Workshop

Performing the Book
Exhibit at the Williamson Gallery, Scripps College, Claremont, California
Curated by Kitty Maryatt
August 30 to October 12, 2008
The Gallery is open Wed-Sun 1-5 p.m.

Contemporary artists’ books on exhibit at the Williamson Gallery invite the viewer to react and decipher visual and textual cues on display. There are slyly straightforward, verbally rich tomes, architectural and archaeological constructions, books with painterly calligraphic gestures, alphabetic type explosions, and colorful puppetry. They are made out of carved bone, gilt leather, aluminum and lead, tar paper. They hang, stand, twist and shout. This exhibit asks the viewer to participate in performing each book.
