Self-Published: Artists Making Books, Editions and Zines aims to create appreciation and understanding for artists’ books as portable, intimate, democratic and self-contained works of art. The exhibition will feature different themes and approaches; being the common denominator is the book format and its different possibilities. To highlight the book as a creative space, the curators commissioned artists with ties to South Florida to make small run, limited edition artists’ books. The exhibition will also feature artwork connected to the artists’ book commissioned and process notes. A variety of media and formats will be explored with installations throughout campus that intersect and define the book format in unexpected ways.
In the spirit of Self-Published, production resources will be available to the community as well as a zine making station at the Art Lab gallery.
During the closing reception, a book exchange will take place to share all of the publications made by the Florida Gulf Coast University and Fort Myers community.
