Off the Shelf: The Artist Book Unbound
April 12 - May 9, 2007
Art History Gallery, Mitchell 154
Challenge your presumptions as artists re-conceptualize the book in this exhibition of contemporary artists’ books. Since the rapid expansion of digital technology after 1981, the book has become increasingly obsolete as a storehouse of information, freeing artists to explore its expressive potential. The approximately 25 works in this show demonstrate how the book approaches sculpture as it comes unbound from its conventional form. Curated by UWM Art History graduate students in Museum Studies, the exhibition draws from the outstanding collection of artists’ books in the Special Collections Library at UWM.
Open Reception: Thursday, April 12, 4 to 7pm
