Talk about artists' publications by David Senior, Thursday January 9

Thursday January 9, 17h at the library, Benthem Crouwel building, room 030

David Senior, Bibliographer at the Museum of Modern Art Library in New York, will discuss a history of artists' publications in the 20th and 21st centuries. There will be a few different stories about how artists and designers have used their little publications as containers for new ideas, creating lively and weird spaces to communicate work and archive art actions. Most examples will come from the collection of books that he works with at MoMA and several recent exhibitions he has organized of artists' books and ephemera.
David Senior is Bibliographer at the MoMA, New York. He is the curator of exhibitions at the MoMA library such as 'Access to Tools: Publications from the Whole Earth Catalog', 'Please Come to the Show' and his writing has been published in Dot Dot Dot, Bulletins of the Serving Library, Frieze and other publications.
Thanks to the Dutch Art Institute in Arnhem for making this talk possible.
