Book Arts: Investigating Text & Image

Book Arts: Investigating Text & Image

What is a book?  Information, recreation, an artifact, a work of art?

Fairfield University students utilize discarded library books to explore the nature of text and image, creating original artworks that challenge our view of family, politics, and identity. The exhibit runs September 15 - December 20, 2016 in the lobby/foyer and can be viewed during library hours.

Mark your calendars: Artist Doug Beube will be giving a lecture and tour of the exhibit in the library on October 26th.  The lecture is at 5:00 PM in the MultiMedia Room, Lower Level.  Beube is a mixed-media artist working in collage, sculpture and photography, who also teaches classes in artist's books, mixed-media, and photography.  He exhibits both nationally and internationally, and his bookworks and photographs are in numerous private and public collections, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art and New York's Museum of Modern Art.
