Episode 4

Art Books as Art Object

Featured practitioners coming soon
This episode introduces the compelling possibility of publication as an art object. We explore how an artist book is uniquely different from other modes of display that rely on how space plays out differently on the page. We will describe the possible ways and limitations of channelling the book format for artistic projects and presentations, while addressing how traditional boundaries of what defines a publication can be pushed and expanded to better address the specifics of the artistic content.

The episode features a conversation with curators on their experiences with art books, as they reflect on the process and outcome of challenging a diverse group of artists to think about publications as an outlet for their practices.

Stay tuned every week!
