Unlike catalogs or monographs that showcase artworks created in another medium, the term “artists’ books” refers to publications that have been conceived as artworks in their own right. They are often created to share ideas in an accessible form that is inexpensive to produce and easy to distribute. These works often combine image and text, and use shape, color, sequence, and juxtaposition as essential parts of the reading/viewing experience. This exhibition features a range of bookworks from the Museum’s collection, by artists including Clifford Amyx, John Baldessari, Jackie Ferrara, Jenny Holtzer, Alan Kaprow, and Sol LeWitt.
