Production, Not Reproduction:Offset Printed Artist Books September 28, 2007 – December 8, 2007

Production not Reproduction, is an exhibition that will draw attention to the influence of offset printing on the genre of artist’s books. The complex printing process of offset lithography was developed in the late 19th century, but only refined as a viable print production process after World War II. This exhibition will chart the rise (mid-1950’s) and fall (late 1990’s) of offset printed artists’ books. This exhibition will include examples of offset printed artists’ books from conceptual artists such as Dieter Roth and Ed Ruscha; feminist artworks; works from not-for-profit presses including Visual Studies Workshop and Nexus Press; and works from the 1980’s that many consider to be the pinnacle of offset artists’ books production.
