Dissections and Excavations in Book Art
Increasingly, contemporary artists have been exploring the interplay among the function, structure, and format of books. Curated by Karen Ann Myers, Assistant Director of the Halsey Institute, Rebound: Dissections and Excavations in Book Art brings together the work of five mixed-media artists from around the world who, using books as a point of departure, sculpt, scrape, bend, and carve to create astonishing compositions. Doug Beube, Long-Bin Chen, Brian Dettmer, Guy Laramée, and Francesca Pastine transform various types of literature and/or printed books through sculptural intervention.ONLINE EXHIBITION »
Sept. - Oct.. 2002
This exhibition marks the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001. In the aftermath, the sentiment expressed by many Americans was to bomb Afghanistan “back to the Stone Age”—a sentiment that could not have been more ironic, given the fact that the Soviets had already leveled much of the country’s infrastructure in the 1980′s. But before 9-11, most Americans had little understanding of the country of Afghanistan or its people. Since then, our country’s and the world’s attention has been focused on this forgotten corner of the globe.ONLINE EXHIBITION »
