    Goudy Lecture on Book Arts

    Stephanie Sauer
    Thursday, September 19, 2019
    Hampton Room, Scripps College campus

    Murals, textiles, protest posters, diaries, zines, oral traditions, and cordel literature share a publishing history that rests outside of the mainstream, yet continue to influence book arts and independent publishers today. Stephanie Sauer discusses her interdisciplinary text-based practice in the context of systemic silencing and the dynamic print cultures that have emerged in its wake throughout the Americas.

    Stephanie Sauer is an interdisciplinary book artist, publisher, and the author of Almonds Are Members of the Peach Family(winner of the Noemi Book Prize for Prose) and The Accidental Archives of the Royal Chicano Air Force (University of Texas Press). Her work has been exhibited at the De Young Museum, NYC’s Center for Book Arts, and the National Library of Baghdad. She currently serves as a lecturer at the San Francisco Art Institute, founding editor of Copilot Press, and as managing editor of A Bolha Editora in Brazil.

Points of View: Histories of the Present

Scripps College, at the Claremont Colleges, Claremont, CA
January 9-10, 2015

Registration is Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in the Clark Humanities Museum (http://wwcrippscollege.edu/events/clark).

Scripps College in Claremont, California will host the next CBAA Annual Meeting on January 9-10, 2015.  Scripps College is one of seven members of The Claremont Colleges Consortium located 35 miles east of Los Angeles. The theme Points of View: Histories of the Present focuses on approaches to teaching the recent history of artist books and how to locate resources to support that teaching. This meeting will capitalize on the diverse interests of CBAA members and look at topics in the history of our field from three points of view: from that of a scholar, a practitioner, and a librarian/collector/historian.


PROGRAM: Over two days, we will have sessions dividing artist book history into three parts with discussion surrounding representative examples: proto-artist books (Blaise Cendrars and Sonia Delaunay’s 1913 Transsibérien), the 1960s break from livres d’artistes (the work of Ed Ruscha), and contemporary book art using digital technologies (Sam Winston’s A Dictionary Story).  Each panel presentation by CBAA members, Scripps faculty and invited speakers will be followed by small-group discussions of the ideas presented. The second day will end with a Closing Conversation by Ed Ruscha, moderated by Marcia Reed.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS: The CBAA Annual Meeting encourages interactions between members as well as practical discussions of the goals of the organization. Committee meetings will occur in two time slots, in which all members are encouraged to participate.


EXHIBITS: There will be an exhibit in the Clark Humanities Museum of books made by CBAA members, selected by Scripps students from Special Collections at Denison Library. Copies of the three books discussed in the presentations will also be on exhibit at the Museum along with ancillary materials. Other related exhibits will be presented at Denison and Honnold Libraries.


TOURS: Tours of a number of collections, libraries, and presses at The Claremont Colleges Consortium have been arranged, as well as off-campus tours to the Getty Museum and Huntington Library before the start of the Annual Meeting.
