Artists' Books are one of the most unconventional contemporary art forms. Artists and print makers specially conceive and produce one-of-a-kind or small-edition books/objects, often inventing the book structure to heighten the expression of the content. They can be small or large, complicated or simple, opened and "read," like a normal book, or experienced like "boxes", which resemble sculptures.
This exhibition showcases artists' books produced by artists whose work also exists as prints. Their work can be viewed on the wall or as books to be opened and closed or manipulated as the artist has envisioned it.
The Opening Reception will take place on Thursday October, 15, 2009 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in the BorgWarner Community Meeting Room and the Avenue of the Friends. Many of the participating artists will be present to discuss their books and show them to patrons.
The exhibit will be on display in the Avenue of the Friends and the North Reading Room through December 2009.
