Organized by Alexander Campos, Maddy Rosenberg, & Roni Gross.
What is a livre d’artiste? One could argue, not in absolute, that the livre d’artiste was “traditionally” put together by the publisher asking an artist and writer (who often didn’t even know each other) to create work for a publication. The collaboration was usually an arranged one and the production value was usually of high quality produced in a limited run. For this exhibition, however, the curators are interested to see how artists, writers, performers, etc, have found ways to self-produce publications that embody the collaborative spirit embedded in the concept of the livre d’artiste. The exhibition will present the work of a true collaboration, not one artist responding to a finished work, but instead one in which both contributors have equal weight.
