Artist books by alumni sought for exhibition

In conjunction with Alumni College 2003, “Humanism in the Digital World: Letterform and Text from Renaissance Times to Today,” June 4–6, the Reed College art department will mount the exhibition Letterform, Text, and Image of artist books by Reed alumni.

Alumni are invited to contribute work to this exhibition, which will be mounted in the recently renovated Edith Feldenheimer Gallery in the studio arts building from June 1 through June 9.

The exhibition will focus on books addressing the manipulation of the visual form of language, the submergence of image and text, and the reading of visual imagery. The works may be one-of-a-kind or limited edition. They may be in the form of a portfolio bind, a traditional codex, an accordion, a pamphlet, or an unconventional sculptural book.

One section of the gallery will be turned into a library-like environment for visitors to view the edition works with gloves at tables. Throughout the gallery, limited edition works, one-of-a-kind works, and featured works will be enclosed in cases.

If an alumnus’s work is already in Reed’s collection of artist books it will be included, but the art department would like to show new work as well. Alumni who are willing to contribute at least one work to the exhibition may email Donna White ’01 at donna.s.white@reed.edu, and she will send you the application form. Entry forms must be received by March 30, 2003, and the work must be received by May 30.
