Curating the Page


threewallsSALON: Curating the Page
Tuesday March 23rd, 7:00 pm
119 N Peoria in unit 2C

There appears to be a growing return to the book amongst younger artists, writers and thinkers. This move towards the material and physical may be in reaction to the vastness and immateriality of forms of cultural production in the Second Life era. This discussion centers around definitions of the publication as art object, as curated exhibition, as micro-archive, as well as phenomenological aspects of the publication—its tactility, personable and intimate dimensions, and the unique one-to-one relationship between reader/viewer and object. Bookmakers, editors, curators and scholars have been invited to this discussion to share their experiences as we ponder the significance of recent evolutions in the book as object, curatorial challenges the artist book provokes, and the future of the medium.

Guest Respondents: Brandon Alvendia, Simon Anderson, Doro Boehme, Michael Golec, and Paige Johnston
