I will be attending the CBAA (College Book Art Association) National Conference in Salt Lake City, hosted by the University of Utah. I will be on a panel with Julie Chen and Barb Tetenbaum on the subject of Ideation Strategies in the Process and Production of Artists' Books. The conference takes place from January 2-5.
I (Spaceheater Editions that is) will also have a "solo" show in January at the University of Central Missouri Gallery of Art & Design. Christian Cutler, the Gallery Director, has curated work from the past 34 years of work from Spaceheater Editions. The show will run from January 13th through February 6, 2014.
On Saturday, October 19th, 2013, I will be giving a lecture/paper at APHA Conference, (American Printing History Association) at the Grolier Club at 47 East 60th Street in New York City. My presentation will be between 3:30 and 4:45 pm. The title of the presentation is "The Apex (and Subsequent Demise) of Process Color Letterpress as Shown in the Printing of the National Geographic Magazine in the Nineteen-Fifties" After graduating with an MFA from Visual Studies Workshop, I trained doing color separations with Harry Christen of Christen Litho Laboratories of Rochester NY, one of the first users of the Vario-Klischograph and of Hell drum scanners in the United States.
You can see a short description at <http://printinghistory.org/demise-process-color-letterpress-national-geo... or just got to <https://vimeo.com/78230375> to see the whole presentation as a QuickTime movie.
Panelist (with lecture) on a criticism panel on the subject of Michael Snow's Cover to Cover at the 2013 ARLIS Book Conference which runs concurrently at the New York Book Fair (NYABF) at MoMA PS1 in Long Island City, Queens on September 19, 20 and 21, 2013. Clifton Meador and I will share a table at the NYABF with some of our latest work. Look for us in Area Q on the second floor of PS1. We would love to have you stop by and visit with us.
I am also included (with two books Ojalá, 2012, and report from the other side, 2013.) in a show that opens on September 18th, 2013. The exhibition is called DIY (Visits Chicago): Photographers and Books and it runs until December 7. The show consists of a selection of contemporary photo artists' books that are all printed by print-on-demand. The website explians the show: "The Center for Book and Paper Arts will mount a second iteration of an exhibition exploring print-on-demand photo books. Originally curated by Barbara Tannenbaum for the Cleveland Museum of Art, DIY: Photographers and Books (2012) was the first museum show to focus on the impact of print-on-demand publishing on contemporary photographic practice. This is a juried exhibition focused on photobooks that move beyond the monograph. How do photographers engage the book form in ways that are experimentally visual and conceptual, while pushing the possibilities of print on demand publishing?" If you are in the Chicgao area this Fall, please drop by the show.
