Description

from Boo-Hooray website: “Artists’ Book Not Artists’ Book” featured books that are, and/or, are not, artists’ books. The exhibition included work by Chris Burden, Ira Cohen, Richard Meltzer, John Baldessari, Seth Price, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Richard Hell, Tina Lhotsky, Sue Williams, Tom Sachs, Richard Prince, William Gibson, David Wojnarowicz, Dara Birnbaum, Jim Shaw, Ed Ruscha, Sean Landers, and others (not to mention, Various, Anonymous, and Unknown).

The exhibition was a collaboration between Johan Kugelberg/Boo-Hooray and Jeremy Sanders/6 Decades Books. Jeremy, as most of you know, is a noted enthusiast, expert, and dealer of artists’ books. His previous publications in the field have been splendid yardsticks of scholarly merit. Johan, on the other hand, is a caffeinated perpetuum mobile of dilettantism in the field, so hey, a natural collabo was in place.

Jeremy curated the artists’ books in this show, and Johan curated the not artists’ books. But alas! Sometimes Johan curated artists’ books, and sometimes Jeremy has curated ‘not artists’ books.’ Presto chango! http://boo-hooray.com/exhibits/artists-book-not-artists-book

Issued with a poster and price list. Printed back-to-back inverted (tete beche) with: Artists' Books Not Artists' Books by Jeremy Sanders.

Published to accompany an exhibition held January 18-February 12, 2012, at Boo-Hooray Gallery in New York.
