This bilingual (English/Spanish) catalog Off-Register: Publishing Experiments by Women Artists in Latin America, 1960-1990 edited by curator Mela Dávila Freire will be released in October 2023 to accompany the exhibition at Center for Book Arts.
This catalog documents the creative practices of a series of Latin American women artists who, between 1960 and 1990, channeled part of their artistic impetus into printed and serialized media. The time span covered by the exhibition tracks the expansion of the conceptual movement, which began around 1960 and, depending on the geographical contexts, would last until the end of the 1980s. This was the time when artists’ books and other printed matter joined the list of new formats—installation, video, performance…—that were beginning to spread beyond the classic artistic genres and widen the field of possibilities for creators.
*This catalog will ship on November 30, 2023.
