Artist Books 3.0

Where artists' books and the book arts meet online...


Ok we have installed the Book As Art Exhibition as best we could, unfortunately 21 artist books came home. Deciding to include work from my private collection including the artist books 3.0 that have been exchanged so far, resulted in a number of works that just couldn't be included in the exhibition even though they had been catalogued and wall panels made up.  This was due to BRAG not having the right display equipment for this type of exhibition, shelves and or plinths. However BRAG did have clear tops made for some of the bigger plinths which provided protection for the rare and very old artist books from the collection. So even though some of the larger and more difficult to display artist books didn't make it the exhibition, the overall display was very good. The staff and volunteers did a fantastic job and deserve  a big THANK You

Catherine - as to why we do it? I am asking myself the same question.  The pressure we (I) put myself under is enormous - I certainly am rethinking my whole process once An Encyclopedia of Everything is exhibited. Of course I LOVE it - but why??? That question needs unpacking for me too X

Cheryl yes this is my big solo exhibition, 52 of my books, three large books from my private collection plus the 3.0 artist books exchanged so far. But as stated in my blog , twenty one books went home because the gallery did not have enough shelves or plinths to accommodate the work which was a great pity after all that work, two years to prepare and only 6 weeks on exhibit, you have to wonder why you continue to do it? The wall works are images from the pages of the books.
