[BKARTS] Judith Hoffberg at Florida Atlantic University



Judith Hoffberg's Coming to South Florida!

Here's a date to circle on your calendar if you are a South Florida book artist, book arts enthusiast, or if you happen to be heading our way around Labor Day: Tuesday, September 6, 2005. Join us at noon that day for a Brown Bag Lunch with Judith Hoffberg, as she presents "40 Years with Artists' Books: How Time Flies!" You provide the food for your lunch, and we'll provide the food for thought.

Judith A. Hoffberg, librarian and archivist, editor and publisher, lecturer and curator, has three degrees from UCLA in Political Science (BA), Italian Language and Literature (MA), and Library Science. Founder of the Art Libraries Society of North America, Hoffberg has traveled throughout the world lecturing on artists' books, a passion which she developed since the 1960s. Her collection of almost 6000 bookworks is now housed at the UCLA Arts Library Special Collections.

She is the curator of almost 30 artists' book exhibitions, and is the publisher of "The Bookmaker's Desire" by Buzz Spector (1995) and "Umbrella: The Anthology" (2000), and is the author of "Women of the Book: Jewish Artists, Jewish Themes," (Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic Unversity, 2001). She writes art criticism about artists' books and is a frequent contributor to "Artscene," the monthly art gallery guide in the Los Angeles area. She is also editor and publisher of "Umbrella," a newsletter on artists' books, mail art, and contemporary trends in alternative art practice. She resides in Santa Monica, California, but travels the world.

Location to be announced... watch for another announcement sometime next week. Just know that Judith's talk will be here at Florida Atlantic University's Boca Raton campus at noon on Tuesday, September 6.

Save the date!
