BOOKISH: Artist books from the collection of the Rotch Library of Architecture & Planning, 1960-present

Rotch Library of Architecture & Planning
 
Guest curator: Samuel Ray Jacobson, MIT SMArchS ’13, History Theory and Criticism of Architecture and Art

On view April 20-June 10, 2012

Video for the exhibit created in conjunction with the symposium “Unbound: Speculations on the Future of the Book”, BOOKISH explores the means and methods through which artist books challenge the book as traditionally conceived. By their selective, intentional performance and denial of normative aspects of book design, these artist-conceived objects negate such norms while sustaining their worth and continued relevance.
