Dimensions of Dialogue Exhibition Opening Reception
ART IS 482: Letterpress Book Arts is a special topics course taught by art and visual culture assistant professor Raluca Iancu in the newly opened Letterpress Lab at the Student Innovation Center. Students in her class this spring were asked to create a dialogue between two accordion books in response to books from the University Library’s Special Collections.
How can two books or sculptural objects be immersed in conversation? How does each book remain unique and serve as one side of the conversation? The conversation could take place in the binding, through the physical relationship of the accordion form, scale and materials, or through the use of imagery.
Learn how students resolved these questions at the opening reception for their “Dimensions of Dialogue” exhibition from 4:30–5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 7, with a brief program at 4:45 p.m.
The class includes undergraduate and graduate students in graphic design and integrated studio arts, and graduate students in the creative writing MFA program. The show will remain up through the end of the semester in the exhibit case on the first floor of Parks Library.
