More Information

Truth is a rich and provocative subject in today’s world which one might say is more attuned to “truthiness,” the quality of seeming to be true out of a desire for something to be true, as coined by Stephen Colbert.

The concept of truth has long been associated with books, and there was a time when the printed word was taken for truth. In a gentler century, Emily Dickinson wrote, “Tell all the truth but tell it slant,” not wishing to shock with the totality of a revelation all at once. Our digital world lacks this subtlety and our culture fiercely defends the principle that we’re each entitled to our own truth.

Twenty-seven artists were invited to show works that are expressions about truth in the form of handmade, handbound artist books both unique and in small editions, altered books, folded or sculptural books and very limited edition broadsides.

Déjà Vu (All Over Again)

Canada

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from January 03, 2023 until February 25, 2023.

Artist

Cathryn Miller

Opening Hours

Monday to Friday 9 am - 5 pm

Location

Art Gallery of Outlook
400 Saskatchewan Avenue
Outlook, Saskatchewan

More Information

The title Déjà Vu ( All Over Again) references the overall theme of memory in the works and the fact that some of the pieces have been exhibited previously. The memories are personal, cultural, digital, or some combination. Miller's exploration of unusual ways of sharing memories is influenced by a life-long fascination with alternative forms of communication such as infographics and cryptography. A personal iconography substitutes colours and symbols, materials and processes for words and pictures.
The works in the exhibition were made using modified forms of traditional paper manipulation such as origami in combination with re-interpretations of traditional textile processes.

A Few Words Worn Around the Edges, Pressed into Something Soft: Ten West Coast Women Printers

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from September 05, 2022 until March 05, 2023.

Opening Hours

Friday 9 am – 5 pm
Saturday and Sunday 2 pm – 5 pm

Location

Women have been involved in the printing and production of books in what became the United States since Elizabeth Glover established a press in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1638. After the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 forced her to flee the United States, Mary Ann Shadd, an African American woman, founded and published The Provincial Freeman, an antislavery newspaper, in 1853 in Ontario, Canada. This exhibition celebrates the important history of women in printing and publishing by featuring ten women artists, illustrators, and printers currently working on the West Coast of the United States. Through individual efforts and collaborations, apprenticing and mentoring, they produce stunning objects that push our understanding of “the book” and the role it can play in questioning the world we live in and celebrating contemporary efforts to achieve a more just, inclusive, and diverse society.

The title of the exhibition, “A Few Words Worn Around the Edges, Pressed Into Something soft,” is a quote from Inge Bruggeman’s, The Quickest Forever (2017), which is displayed in Case 3.

Curated by Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library staff members; Jessica Becker, Public Services Assistant, and Bill Landis, Education Program Director.

The William H. Wright Special Collections Exhibition Area is located on the lower level of the Haas Family Arts Library. (Due to COVID 19 restrictions, exhibitions are currently open only to Yale affiliates authorized to be on campus.)

East West - Sofia Paper Art Fest 2022

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Sunday 11 am - 7 pm

Gallery opening - 10/11/2022 - 6:30 pm

Location

Gallery Finesse
17 Hristo Belchev str
Sofia

More Information

East–West is the last exhibition in the program Sofia Paper Art Festival 2022. After presenting a variety of exhibitions as part of the festival's largest section, the Paper Art Biennial, the focus is now on sculpture and installation. The exhibition shows a selection of artists who are fascinated by three-dimensional possibilities. At the same time, we are launching a long-term exchange project between Bulgaria and Germany, which will continue over the next few years with traveling formats in both countries.

The selected artists will present works in different styles and with diverse messages. The installations and objects overflow with structures and volumes in the range of white and black. Other artists use the illusion of volume or focus on reliefs, while others prefer amorphous forms in soft, earthy tones. Some of the artists occupy the space with luminous works that are a counterpoint to others that rely on lush color. 
 
The exhibition EAST-WEST aims to question certain aspects of sculpture and installation outside of the exhibition space, even though this particular exhibition presents more intimate works set in the gallery. The discussion about the new technologies in sculpture, the lectures on contemporary sculpture in urban and natural environments, the presentations by individual artists, and international sculpture events are among the important topics addressed in the program. The possibilities of three-dimensional works and the new technologies provoke new means of expression and this raises a number of questions and seeks innovative solutions.

17 artists from the two countries were selected:
Bulgaria: Anna Boyadjieva, Daniela Todorova, Todor Todorov, Snejana Simeonova, Valentin Bakardjiev, Adelina Rakovska, Krasimira Drenska, Tsveta Petrova, Mihail Artamontzev;
Germany: Verena Friedrich, Irene Hoppenberg, Ines Seidel, Ilka Raupach, Lore Galitz, Oksana Bergen, Sofia Nordmann, Ute Krautkremer, Helmut Frerick

More Information

Ras Al Khaimah Fine Arts Festival (RAKFAF), a nonprofit community arts festival designed to showcase the work of local and emerging artists, photographers, and filmmakers and engage the community through a diverse calendar of cultural and creative programming.
As a part of artist in Residence programme. Masarratfatima Sulaimani will exhibit her solo exhibition during the festival. The installation titled 'Footprints' is a celebration of the relationship between nature and humankind. Inspired by these elements, the installation explores the ongoing dialogue between these two entities, as one continues to take over the other—like water washing over footprints—and yet neither stops moving.

The artist's intent behind this piece was to create a reflection on the common characteristics and duality of both elements: both being so strong yet equally fragile. It also highlights how our presence on earth affects nature, and vice versa: we leave our marks on our surroundings as we pass through them, but those marks will eventually wash away or be reclaimed by nature in turn. The installation is made of paper by hand cutting it and for some parts- papers are hand-made from plants found in Ras Al Khaimah. Each piece is uniquely created to create the impression of a trail through a surrealistic representation of nature and man-made spaces.
Material: hand made paper, hand cut Paper and branches

When PRINT Meets PAPER

United States

The exhibition is opened from January 17, 2023 until April 21, 2023.

Artist

Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking

Opening Hours

Reception: Friday, March 17, 2023, 6 pm - 8 pm

Location

Robert C. Williams Museum of Papermaking
500 Tenth Street NW
Atlanta, GA 30332

More Information

Curated by Georgia Deal, When PRINT Meets PAPER focuses on artists working at the intersection of print and paper. This show includes the work of Melissa Harshman, Kelly Taylor Mitchell, Marilyn Propp, Gretchen Schermerhorn and Georgia Deal.  Each artist approaches the “marriage” of paper and print in unique ways, some coming from the lexicon of print and others from a primary focus and love of hand papermaking.  It can be argued that a commonality connects the works, with the origins of printmaking historically addressing social, political and narrative themes.

Whereabouts: In Between Presence and Absence

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from July 25, 2022 until July 29, 2023.

Artist

Sun Young Kang

Opening Hours

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 12 pm - 5 pm

Closed Sunday and Monday

Location

Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts
Kendall College of Art and Design
Ferris State University 
17 Pearl St. NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49503

More Information

Whereabouts: The Influence of Place and Space is an ongoing series of installations considering the most public-facing space – the Lobby, Living Room, and Cases. Artists build an immersive environment or site-specific work that responds to the space’s architecture, ornamentation, furniture, and social nature. These works consider the nuanced understanding of art, design, and craft to push conceptual and material boundaries.

In Between Presence and Absence uses discarded paper to create paper pulp and cast everyday vessels. This process allows me to visualize the invisible — the parallel to the visible world. As I deconstruct the original identity of the vessels by installing them upside-down, I'm highlighting the container's void. As a result, the negative space of the UICA Lobby ceiling is filled with emptiness, articulating a non-describable concept, the inseparability of presence and absence, and the tension between them.
