[BKARTS] Charles Gute's REVISIONS AND QUERIES: Works on Paper



Spoonbill & Sugartown, Booksellers, is pleased to present a talk and book signing by CHARLES GUTE on the occasion of the publication of: 

REVISIONS AND QUERIES: Works on Paper

published by The Ice Plant, 2008. 


Tuesday October 14, 8 pm, Free 


"Revisions and Queries" [brings] to mind text pieces by such artists as Lawrence Weiner and Robert Barry, but Gute's work has a humor and visual energy unmatched by anyone else working in that vein.
--Kenneth Baker, ARTnews, March 2007 


Charles Gute has worked with text as a primary material both as a conceptual artist and as a freelance editor of art books. These separate activities--studio practice and day job--unexpectedly overlapped when Gute hit upon the idea of taking corrected publisher's proofs and stripping out all content except for his own revisions, queries and proofreader's notations. Reframed as line drawings, these abstract constellations of marks resonate with their original subject matter in unpredictable ways. Featuring more than 50 drawings, Revisions and Queries is an art book about art books; it offers an amusing glimpse behind the scenes of both the art world and art book publishing. 

Charles Gute is a Brooklyn-based artist and editor. He has been awarded artist fellowships from the San Francisco Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, and has twice been a MacDowell Colony Visual Arts Fellow. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum (Berkeley), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), the UCLA Hammer Museum (Los Angeles), and Catherine Clark Gallery (San Francisco). In the fall of 2008 his work will be on view at Galerie Feinkost in Berlin, and a solo exhibition called "FIND-A-TEXT" will open at Jason Rulnick Gallery in New York on November 6th.
