Beats & Women Artists, in plain text

           See The Exhibition Online, And Order Your Catalog.

Sorry about all the html gibberish lately. Here are the two important
postings, in plain text, hopefully. Simplicity is the key!


* * * * * 1) BEATS exhibit

Like, crazy, pops!

The Arthur and Mata Jaffe Collection of Books as Aesthetic Objects presents
"BEATS: Artists' Books & Original Works," an exhibit of books and
broadsides from the Beat movement of the last century. Works on display
include a four foot shaped rendering of Gregory Corso's "Bomb," handwritten
by the author in 1958, as well as Corso's European notebooks, and several
letterpress limited editions and one-of-a-kind artists' books featuring the
works of Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and William S. Burroughs.
"Propagation Hazard," in fact, features Burroughs collaborating in the
studio with David Bradshaw on original lithography and intaglio prints,
providing a glimpse past the words and into the author's artistic vision.
There are also numerous original City Lights books from the beginnings of
the movement, campy paperbacks of the time, interesting Kerouac odds &
ends, as well as an original holograph handwritten by Allen Ginsberg:
"Neal's Ashes," a touching poem that Ginsberg wrote upon the death of Neal

The exhibit runs through March 31, 2002, at the Jaffe Atrium Gallery, third
floor east of Florida Atlantic University's Wimberly Library. The Atrium
Gallery is accessible during regular library hours, but it's best to
schedule an appointment to view other works in the Jaffe Book Arts
Collection. Phone the collection at 561 297 0226, or email <lysca@fau.edu>.

Questions about this gone exhibit, daddy-o? Direct 'em to me, John Cutrone:
<jcutrone@fau.edu>, and we'll catch you out there.

* * * * * 2) Women of the Book catalog

The exhibit Women of the Book: Jewish Artists, Jewish Themes has just
completed a four-year run traveling to venues throughout our bookish
geography. Among the many book artists counted in this exhibit are Tatana
Kellner, Judy Hoffman, Miriam Schaer, Dorothy Field, Alisa Golden and
Stephanie Brody.

"From personal narrative (including family relationships), ritual and
liturgy, the Holocaust and history, literature and myth, the books in the
exhibition demonstrate how Jewish women artists utilize the book form to
establish their position within Judaism, but also explore the intimacy as
well as the universality of the book within Jewish tradition." --Judith
Hoffberg, curator

catalog of the exhibition, featuring images of the over 100 artists' books
that comprise the show. The catalog, a beautiful book in and of itself, is
