***Lecture: Purposeful Chance in Contemporary Artists’ Books (Thank You, John Cage!)
June 28, Thursday, 7:00
Speaker: Robin Price
Location: Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, level 4
The lecture is FREE and open to the public.
Robin Price delivers an illustrated lecture exploring the use of chance in artists’ books—in concept and/or execution—and examines earlier twentieth century precedents, particularly the print and book work of John Cage. Price discusses some of her own work involving the purposeful use of chance and randomness. Lecture attendees have the opportunity to view and handle several bookworks featured in Price’s talk, courtesy of the J. Willard Marriott Library’s Special and Fine Arts Collections.
