Manton Study Center for Works on Paper

This three-part series looks at books and periodicals made by modern and contemporary artists. The series will consider how artists have used typography and the book form—from avant-garde journals of the early twentieth century to artists’ books of the last twenty years—to advance their aesthetic and political programs. These hands-on sessions, using books drawn from the Clark library’s extensive collections, are led by Robert Wiesenberger, associate curator of contemporary projects.

Additional sessions in this series will be held on November 21 and December 19.

Due to space limitations, registration is required.
