> DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this display is to create a dialogue about the tradition of the "artist book" and the genre of the book medium. The artist book is an art form and a medium widely unexplored by contemporary artists in China, but is not absent from current practice. An artist book does not refer to a publication used to augment an exhibition, rather it is an object produced as an art work itself, often as a unique or limited edition. This project is a survey of objects that are related to books by twenty-four contemporary artists from cities around the world. This exhibition highlights the varied interpretations of the book form: as a vessel for information or narrative, as an abstract form that transcends function, or as a medium referring to a book's social function.
