The secret library of Solihull (group exhibition)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The Secret Library of Solihull reveals the many spectacular and subversive works that fall under the title of “artist’s books”. Everyone has a favourite book and in this form of modern art it is the book itself which takes centre stage, however artists’ books are a little-known form of contemporary art, which became popular during the 20th century. Often produced in small quantities, artists’ books are books, or book-like objects, intended as a work of art in their own right. Works on display include books that focus on wordplay, feature the book as a theatrical stage for conceptual ideas, a dynamic and infinitely complex surface for imagery, or a springboard from which to launch sweeping narratives.
