Now showing in the library, The Book Transformed: A final project from Jean Mandeberg and Steven Hendrick’s Narrative Objects program.
What makes a work of art capable of narrative expressiveness? What constitutes a narrative? How do artists invest tangible records, stories, artifacts and objects with meaning, and how do readers work to recuperate or transform those meanings for themselves?
Inspired by artist/critic Johanna Drucker’s recent visit and campus exhibition, the students explored the relationship between text and image, detailed craft work in the book arts and fine metals studios, and an interrogation of the limits of the book form.
Don’t miss this wonderful exhibition in the Daniel J. Evans library, show now through mid-quarter, spring. See a related post from Narrative Objects in a One Minute Evergreen.
