Field of Vision
Landscape in the Artist’s Book
The Smithsonian Institution Libraries is proud to announce its newest display of artists’ books, titled “Field of Vision: Landscape in the Artist’s Book,” installed at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery Library. The display of over 15 artist-made books incorporates examples from the collections of the Warren M. Robbins Library at the National Museum of African Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum & National Portrait Gallery Library, as well as the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Library. The books reflect ways in which artists have responded to the world around them, from places they have lived in, travelled to, or only imagined. Books by artists such as Vito Acconci, Susan Allix, Tacita Dean, Edgar Heap of Birds, Richard Long, and Edward Ruscha are featured. The books range from commercially printed volumes, to handmade examples and encompass a period from the late 1960s up through to the last decade. The show will be on view through 2013.
Please join us October 25, 2013 for A Wikipedia Loves Libraries Editathon at the Smithsonian AA/PG Library, focusing on American Artists at the World's Columbian Exposition.
