Artist Talk: Artist as Publisher
6:30 Wednesday 30 July 2008
Currently on view at the Center for Book Arts is Artist as Publisher, a group exhibition of contemporary artists who produce texts, either as publishers or authors, as part of their work. The show describes itself as selecting work which "embody a spirit of collaboration and experimentation and a DIY ethos," and so much is also obvious from the roster of artists included, including work from at least one member of a fairly visible young arts collective (dearraindrop) and another contribution from the ambitious, collaboratively produced artists publication and creative hub North Drive Press. Tonight as part of the exhibition's supporting program, curator Omar Lopez-Chahoud will be moderating discussions between participating artists Billy Miller and Scott Hug, Felipe Mujica, Inger-Lise McMillan (speaking on behalf of Rachel Mason) and Mark Golamco (speaking on behalf of John Knuth).
