Artist’s Book Workshop “Material as Content: An Artist’s Book”

Time: 4th-14th of December 2023
Location: Vilnius Academy of Arts

Prof. Timothy Frerichs: “This workshop will explore how found materials used to create an artist book will create the book content. Participants will be asked to source materials that incorporate an intellectual unity, or physical unity that communicates content. This can be manifested in a sense of place, an event, or cultural commentary. Participants will need to incorporate a book structure (binding) that complements their artist book content. Experience with book structure and book conceptual development is preferred.”
