A DOZEN DAYS: Expanded Stacks Compressed

A series of small-scale book art exhibitions by Susan Joy Share and organized by Norman B. Colp.

Expanded Stacks Compressed (1981). The work explores extended box structures which unfold in an accordion-like fashion. Individual pieces may open from one to fifty feet. There is no one way to view this work and part of Share’s exploration deals with the constant re-arrangement, motion and sound. There is a concern for detail and surface as well as overall structure. This work is based on traditional library preservation boxes and book structures.

Support for the Center for Book Arts’ visual arts programming is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
