Form & Concept

Artist Talk | Superscript

This group show unites insurgent members of New Mexico’s formidable community of book artists, along with several artists from across the nation. It is almost entirely composed of large-scale installation works that either incorporate books or are conceptually linked to them.

 Penney Bidwell and Matt Doubek present The Poet, a toy capsule vending machine that dispenses snippets of poetry by Adrian Oteiza and Ran Huntsberry. There’s a vinyl window display by Melody Sumner Carnahan and Michael Sumner of the imprint Burning Books, and a series of mixed-media artworks that Erin Mickelson created in collaboration with poetry and image-generating Twitter bots.
