Download File (110.0 MB)
This presentation explores the processes and ideas behind the creation of the artist’s book from three vantage points. The first: a collaborative approach blending artistic and scientific disciplines. The second: an enterprise that uses words and ideas as an ignition point for the creation of images. The third: a curatorial view of the reception for editioned and one-of-a-kind creations. I will discuss my collaborative book projects completed with Dr. Pamela Morgan PhD., at the University of New England. I will also present other viewpoints gleaned by interviewing book artist and curator Rebecca Goodale, Program Coordinator-Kate Cheney Chappell '83 Center for Book Arts, University of Southern Maine, and Cathleen Miller, poet and curator, Maine Women Writers Collection, Abplanalp Library, University of New England. These professional educators will illuminate the reception of a wide range of artist’s books. They will also address current and possible future practices and how institutions can increase their support of this expressive mode of communication.
