Artists’ Books Open House February 20

Wednesday, February 20
11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Thompson Library, 1858 Neil Avenue, Columbus, OH  43210
Room 150

Come see work by Marina Abramovic and Ulay, John Baldessari, Johanna Drucker, Fluxus, General Idea, The Guerrilla Girls, Hans Haacke, Nancy Holt, Douglas Huebler, Barbara Kruger, Sol LeWitt, George Maciunas, Ed Ruscha, Carolee Schneemann, Richard Tuttle, Lawrence Weiner, Xu Bing, and many more.

The open house will also include a selection from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum’s Dylan Williams Collection of small press and self-published mini-comics, which showcase unique formats and binding techniques from underground cartoonists to contemporary self-publishers. If you are interested in homemade comics and the art of the book, this is a unique opportunity to examine these objects up close and understand how they’re made. The Cartoon Library’s Caitlin McGurk will also be available during the open house to discuss the materials and their construction.

Gloves will be provided so visitors can study the works. Because of the sensitive nature of the materials (such as their designs, paper qualities, and fragility), we ask that no backpacks or portfolios, food, drink, or wet media be brought into the room with them.  Pencils and paper are best!
