About the exhibition

Craft & Conceptual Art: Reshaping the Legacy of Artists’ Books, revisits the early history of artists’ books, focusing on the intertwined legacies of book art centers across the US whose primary goal has been to teach the craft practices of book arts, and other institutions focused on distribution and collecting. Tracing the foundation and production of book art organization across the US—including, Center for Book Arts in 1974, Printed Matter and Franklin Furnace in 1976, Minnesota Center for Book Arts in 1983, and San Francisco Center for the Book in 1996—this exhibition shows craft and conceptual art not to be opposites, but rather two ends of a spectrum of book art practices.


This is an in-person event at 28 West 27th Street 3rd Floor. 10001 NYC.
