Narratives of the Possible: Artists’ Books

Featured image: “Tongue-tied” by Toni Mosley of Auckland, New Zealand

Introduction from exhibit curator, Mark E. Ritchie:

We all know what a book is, right? 

We generally think of a book as a vessel that contains words, sometimes images, is made of paper and usually presented in a codex format – a sewn or glued spine that assembles a group of pages to be experienced in a sequence. 

In the West, that sequence moves from left to right. Artists’ books harness these relationships, challenge them and sometimes engage other book traditions. A few artists in this exhibition use scrolls and accordion structures. Some of the artists include books that may have multiple sequence experiences, or open in unexpected ways, and are comprised of text, images and objects that engage with the sculptural aspects of being a book, but may not look like that thing we consider a book.
