Event Details:

Please join us for a reception to mark the opening of (un)Bound: Artist’s Books and Experimentation after 1960, an exhibition at the Toledo Museum of Art, curated by students of the Art Museum Practices program at the University of Toledo.

This exhibition presents an overview of the artist’s book genre from the 1960s to the present day, featuring important examples by luminaries such as Ed Ruscha, Werner Pfeiffer, Kara Walker, Jasper Johns, and others, and explores some of the methods by which artists’ books reject and re-envision the traditional illustrated book form. By intentionally obscuring text, folding pages, or requiring the viewer to move around, these artists present surprising and rewarding new ways to perceive the book.
