Attitude, Simulations, and Whimsy: Artist Book as Object


The Newport Beach City Arts Commission presents “Attitude, Simulations, and Whimsy: Artist Book as Object,” a special exhibit featuring the work of 22 University of California Irvine art students, at the Newport Beach Public Library from April 11 through May 11.

As part of their curriculum, students researched the history and creative production of the artist's books at the special collections department of UCI’s Langson Library. They explored the infinite possibilities of constructing and organizing data, or in some cases, interweaving visual narratives using unusual materials, color, line, and form.  Their reinterpretations of the artist’s book take many different forms from sculpted trees to unique containers.
