Learn to Read Art: A Surviving History of Printed Matter
Printed Matter, a pioneer in the field of artists’ books and a nerve center for New York’s alternative arts world for four decades, is the subject of the newest exhibition and publishing project at NYU’s 80WSE gallery, launching December 2. A public opening will take place on Friday, December 12th, 6- 8pm.

A carefully selected amalgamation of books, records, exhibition documentation and flyers, Learn to Read Art: A Surviving History of Printed Matter charts the organizational history of the New York non-profit in relation to the history of artists’ books and important movements in contemporary art from the 70’s to the present, encompassing the alternative space movement, downtown NYC counter-cultural scenes, and artist activism.

Tue – Sat, 10:30am – 6:00pm.
Please note the Gallery will be closed for winter break December 20th – January 5th.

Free and open to the public

Points of View: Histories of the Present

Scripps College in Claremont, California will host the next CBAA Annual Meeting on January 9-10, 2015. Scripps College is one of seven members of The Claremont Colleges Consortium located 35 miles east of Los Angeles. The theme Points of View: Histories of the Present focuses on approaches to teaching the recent history of artist books and how to locate resources to support that teaching. This meeting will capitalize on the diverse interests of CBAA members and look at topics in the history of our field from three points of view: from that of a scholar, a practitioner, and a librarian/collector/historian.

PROGRAM: Over two days, we will have sessions dividing artist book history into three parts with discussion surrounding representative examples: proto-artist books (Blaise Cendrars and Sonia Delaunay’s 1913 Transsibérien), the 1960s break from livres d’artistes (the work of Ed Ruscha), and contemporary book art using digital technologies (Sam Winston’s A Dictionary Story). Each panel presentation by CBAA members, Scripps faculty and invited speakers will be followed by small-group discussions of the ideas presented.

The second day will end with a Closing Conversation by Ed Ruscha, moderated by Marcia Reed. For more details about the program, click here.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS: The CBAA Annual Meeting encourages interactions between members as well as practical discussions of the goals of the organization. Committee meetings will occur in two time slots, in which all members are encouraged to participate.

EXHIBITS: There will be an exhibit in the Clark Humanities Museum of books made by CBAA members, selected by Scripps students from Special Collections at Denison Library. Copies of the three books discussed in the presentations will also be on exhibit at the Museum along with ancillary materials. Other related exhibits will be presented at Denison and Honnold Libraries.

TOURS: Tours of a number of collections, libraries, and presses at The Claremont Colleges Consortium have been arranged, as well as off-campus tours to the Getty Museum and Huntington Library before the start of the Annual Meeting.

The Bibliography Week Lecture: Nick Wilding: The History of Material Forgery
Recent forgeries of early modern books using photopolymer plates have attained a high level of sophistication. This talk will examine the technological, intellectual, and material aspects of book forgery, looking especially at efforts to create convincing artifacts, rather than merely forge texts.

Nick Wilding is Associate Professor of History at Georgia State University. He received his BA in English from Oxford University, his MA in Renaissance Studies at Warwick, and his PhD from the European University Institute, Florence, Italy. He has held postdoctoral positions at Stanford University, Cambridge University, Columbia University, and the American Academy in Rome. Specializing in early modern history of science and communication, he has worked on two projects bringing archival resources to the internet: the Athanasius Kircher Correspondence Project and the Medici Archive Project. His first book, Galileo's Idol: Gianfrancesco Sagredo and the Politics of Knowledge, was published in September 2014 by the University of Chicago Press. Wilding has also been commissioned by Penguin Classics to produce a new translation of Galileo’s Dialogue on the Two Chief World Systems. He has written book reviews for, among others, Isis, Annals of Science, The Journal of Modern History, and the London Review of Books.
