A book is just a book, until it isn't. In this hands-on workshop we'll explore the book as a vehicle for artistic expression through reading, viewing, and making artists' books.
Participants will also have the opportunity to study and handle works from the SFMOMA Library's special collection of artists' books. Participants will also develop conceptual ideas that can be realized through a series of classic and innovative book structures, using basic bookmaking techniques such as cutting, folding, gluing, and binding.
The workshop is led by Kathleen Walkup, writer, curator and professor of book art, and director of the book art program at Mills College, and Barbara Rominski, the current director of archives with the San Francisco Opera and previous head of the SFMOMA Library and Archives from 2003-2016.
