Go see Zoe Strauss’ Ten Years show up now at ICP! Till January 19
She images poverty and hardship by oscillating between intensity and a refreshing lightness and sense of humor. Great images of signs and structures.
the book on books on artists books - edited by Arnaud Desjardin
“The Book on Books on Artists’ Books is a bibliography of books, pamphlets and catalogues on artists’ books. It takes stock of a wide variety of publications on artists’ books since the early 1970s to draw attention to the kind of documentary trace of distribution, circulation and reception they represent. It aims to be a source book of exhibition catalogues, collection catalogues, monographs, dealership catalogues and other lists published to inform, promote, describe, show, distribute and circulate artists’ books.”
