[BKARTS] Performing the Book Exhibit



The exhibition at Scripps College, Claremont, California
PERFORMING THE BOOK
in the Williamson Gallery
continues until October 12, 2008.
The gallery is open from Wednesday to Sunday, 1-5 p.m.
The exhibit was curated by Kitty Maryatt, Assistant Prof. of Art and
Director of the Scripps College Press

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.

List of artists:
Harriet Bart, Robert Bringhurst, Johanna Drucker, Leslie Enders Lee, Don Glaister, Ron King, Shanna Leino, Suzanne Moore, Werner Pfeiffer, Susan Share, Genie Shenk, Sam Winston
