Gallery: QUEERING THE BIBLIOBJECT


  • The Center for Book Arts 28 West 27th St, 3rd Flr New York, NY 10001 (map)
Queering the BibliObject presents works by contemporary lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender artists who explore the book as an object, removed from both the narrative function and cover-to-cover form of the traditional artist’s book.
The exhibition queries how the presence, absence, affect, and phenomenology of bibliobjects is heightened for LGBTQ individuals across cultures and chronologies, and considers how the treatment of the book as an object is a particularly queer artistic strategy.
