Revealed Terrain: The Semantics of Landscape
MAIN GALLERY Organized by Cynthia Nourse Thompson, Director and Associate Professor, MFA Studio Art / MFA Book Arts + Printmaking, The University of the Arts David Charles Chioffi, Associate Professor of Graphic Design, The J. William Fulbright College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Arkansas The landscape of book arts and design is ever expanding: technology and formation; language and voice; and audience and arena. A respect for the historical lineage and an understanding of both disciplines serves as the foundation for this contemporary survey that challenges the assumptions of the geographic landscape in its literal sense. Revealed Terrain: The Semantics of Landscape illuminates trans-disciplinary thought—structure and content; decontextualized pure typography; printing; bookbinding; the multiple; and two‐ and three‐dimensional experimental design—as an experimental map for exploration. Typography once seen only as collective phonetics to convey a singular level of communication has been transformed and contemporized beyond conventionality. The diversity of these artists’ books, broadsides, and prints are united through the theme of landscape—the topography of artistic terrains—however, each realization is defined by the semantics of the subject matter. Selected genres whose classifications are to foster dialogue include: the traditional landscape, the veiled landscape, and the anatomy of letterforms as landscape—each instilling independent visual languages. This at its core is the malleability and hierarchy of semiotics as narrative. Artists include: Macy Chadwick, Gail Deery, Lesley Dill, Henrik Drescher, Carson Fox, Mark Fox, Jane Hammond, William Kentridge, Abby Leigh, Suzanne McClelland, Sarah McDermott, Bill McDowell, Julie Mehretu, Robin Price, Justin James Reed, Elizabeth Sheehan, Kiki Smith, Ann Tyler, Kara Walker, Darren Waterston, and Christopher Wool.
SWEAT Broadsheet Collaboration
FEATURED ARTIST PROJECT Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director & Curator, The Center for Book Arts The SWEAT Broadsheet Collaboration is a collaborative effort of South Florida artists and writers. The 46 artists and 40 participating writers were interested in the intersection of their respective genres – that is, artists interested in text and book arts, and poets and fiction writers attracted to visual images. Through a series of planned meetings, artists and writers from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties met, shared their work and began to collaborate to create varied and vibrant limited edition artworks. This exhibition consists of seventy-eight broadsheets, fine art prints created in a wide variety of media. Media included in the exhibition include letterpress, silkscreen, etching, digital pigment prints, relief prints, monoprints and many forms of hand work, including hand coloring, hand-cut paper and applique on fabric. The SWEAT Broadsheet is an ongoing process of collaboration that stimulates new concepts and methodology. Artists include Gary Moore, Michelle Weinberg, Lea Nickless, Tom Virgin, Carol Todaro, Laura Tan, Alfredo Useche, Rosemarie Chiarlone, and Sara Stites.
