"Transformed Volumes" Gallery Talk, Thursday 6/20

Tomorrow night, Thursday June 20th at 7:00 pm,  Paul Forte will be hosting a gallery talk to discuss "Transformed Volumes: An Exhibition of Artist's Bookworks".  The gallery will be open from 6:00pm-8:00pm as well in order to view the exhibition beforehand.

"Transformed Volumes attempts to make some distinctions between what are called “artist’s books,” and “artist’s bookworks.”  The interesting thing about both these art forms - something that supports my contention regarding the inverse relationship between “de-mediation” and “de-materialization” - is that both arise from Conceptual art. Transformed Volumes makes a strong case for an emerging aesthetic founded upon what might be considered the remains of the traditional book while also showing that the iconic status of this seminal technology still has the power to engage the imagination."

"Transformed Volumes" is a national exhibition featuring works by Douglas Beube of Brooklyn, NY, Claire Dannenbaum of Eugene, Oregon, Paul Forte of Wakefield, RI, Donna Ruff of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Jacqueline Rush Lee of Kaneohe, Hawaii and Irwin Susskind of Brooklyn, New York.

Paul Forte will speak about his inspiration for this exhibition as well as individual works and why they were chosen.
