[BKARTS] 2004 Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair & Conference



Pyramid Atlantic is pleased to announce the 2004 Pyramid Atlantic
Book Arts Fair & Conference to be held in Silver Spring, Maryland on
November 19 - 21.

Please go to our website at http://www.bookartsfair.org/ for more
detailed information including registration fees, schedule of events,
accomodations, directions, list of exhibitors, etc.

More than forty exhibitors will offer extraordinary books ranging
from contemporary fine press and artists' books to antiquarian books
as well as fine examples of handmade papers.

There will also be a Book Arts Conference with ten speakers comprised
of eminent scholars and practitioners in the field. It is our
intention to raise the level of critical inquiry about artists'
books. By coupling the Fair and the Conference we have insured that
there will be a large audience of informed and dedicated book
collectors, scholars, book artists and students.

One group of speakers will address the issues around "Artists' Books:
Conception, Production, Distribution" and will include:
* Johanna Drucker (University of Virginia) - Professor of Media
Studies, poet, book artist, writer

* Karen Wirth (Chair of Fine Arts, Minneapolis College of Art and
Design) - artist & educator
* Tom Trusky (Boise State University) - Director of the Hemingway
Writer Center, and scholar
* Craig Dworkin (Princeton University) - scholar in visual and
experimental poetry

Another group of speakers will talk about "The Artist Book as an
Intermedia Device".
* Buzz Spector (Cornell University) artist and educator
* Emily McVarish - book artist and letterpress printer
* Phil Zimmermann - (School of Art + Design, SUNY Purchase) book
artist, publisher and educator
* Ruth Laxson - poet and book artist
