Modeling the Message
Friday, February 19, 2021 from 12:00am - 1:00am
|Series||Book Arts Studio|
Book artist Alisa Banks will discuss the relationship between content and form in creating artists’ books. For example, her work When is now?, a recent acquisition of the U-M Library, is comprised of a circular wooden box that, when opened, contains what appears to be the top of a person’s head. As you peer into the box, only the person’s hair is visible, nestled in the bottom of the container. A poem encircles the lid. Banks will walk us through a selection of her works and the decisions that went into their eventual forms.
Library events are free and open to the public, and we are committed to making them accessible to attendees. If you anticipate needing accommodations to participate, please notify the listed contact with as much notice as possible.
