A Conversation among Artists Who Have Turned to the Book

Date: May 24 – 25, 2005
Venue: Los Angeles, CA, USA

The Getty Center
Museum Lecture Hall
1200 Getty Center Drive
Los Angeles

Artists’ books evolved throughout the twentieth century as an experimental art form that uses innovative combinations of materials, image, text, and shape. The Getty Research Institute’s exhibition The Artist Turns to the Book (May 24 September 11, 2005) focuses on artists’ books made over the past decade. Julie Chen, Ed Hamilton, Susan Elizabeth King, and Harry Reese,
four of the artists whose work is featured in the exhibition, will take part in an informal conversation about recent artistic developments in this art form. The panel of artists is moderated by Susan M. Allen, chief librarian of the Research Library at the Getty Research Institute.

The artists’ panel is presented by the Getty Research Institute in conjunction with the exhibition and as the closing public program of the four-day conference Artist’ Books Conference Los Angeles, organized by the
Southern California Chapter of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA). The panel will be followed by a reception in the Research Institute Lecture Hall. The Artist Turns to the Book will be on view in the Research Institute Exhibition Gallery until 7:00 p.m.
