    23 Sandy and form & concept are partnering to present an international juried exhibition of book arts to be shown in the form & concept gallery shop in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    About form & concept
    form & concept challenges the perceived distinctions between art, craft, and design. The gallery’s programming acts as a conversation between many converging disciplines, harnessing the power of contemporary creative practice to shatter entrenched narratives. form & concept is located in the Railyard Arts District in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    About 23 Sandy
    23 Sandy was founded by book artist & photographer Laura Russell in 2007 in Portland, Oregon. For 10 years, it was a brick-and-mortar gallery space exhibiting unique & edition artist books and paper art. In 2017, 23 Sandy became an online gallery, and in 2020, artist and long-time gallery assistant Erin Mickelson took over operations from her home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    THEME
    When imperceptible phenomena burst into view, revolutionary change may follow. We learned this in 2020, as an invisible but deadly virus spread across the world, an urgent racial justice movement illuminated dark societal realities, and humanity’s long-simmering crimes against the environment unleashed fires and floods. Unseen forces can shape our lives and surface in unexpected ways, often altering our behaviors and world views if and when we are made aware of them. This call for entries invites artists to submit work exploring the idea of the “unseen”—physically, psychologically, philosophically—and encourages artists to consider the theme through concept, structure, and material.

    Buzz Spector: Alterations

    November 20, 2020–May 31, 2021

    https://www.slam.org/exhibitions/buzz-spector-alterations/

    Literature, language, and philosophy are at the core of Buzz Spector’s work. He is a contemporary Conceptual artist who explores the aesthetic possibilities of language, paper, and books. Buzz Spector: Alterations spans the artist’s career from the 1970s to the present and includes drawings, altered books, postcard assemblages, collages, and more.

    A master at tearing paper, Spector brings a constructive energy to that otherwise destructive act. Sometimes he alters found books by methodically tearing their pages. At other times, he creates his own blocks of printed texts or images that he also transforms by tearing. Through this refashioning of existing printed materials, he poses questions about authorship, the history of art, and the written word. His works are at once deeply literate and slyly humorous.

    Spector is internationally recognized for his contributions to the field of contemporary art. He taught painting, sculpture, and two-dimensional design at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis for a decade before retiring in 2019. This is the first presentation of the artist’s work at a St. Louis museum.

    Buzz Spector: Alterations is curated by Gretchen L. Wagner, the former Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellow for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs; and Elizabeth Wyckoff, curator of prints, drawings, and photographs; with Andrea Ferber, research assistant for prints, drawings, and photographs.
