Gigantic ArtSpace [GAS] presents The Book as Object and Performance, an exhibition of artworks that take the format of the book as a point of departure to deconstruct that which is bound up in text, image and the physicality of books. Artworks in the exhibition consider the broad implications of technological advances on the book and print media, and the ways in which history and culture are articulated through both mass and unique media. The exhibition presents works by 22 visual artists, two evenings of selected book projects “read” and performed by artists in the exhibition, a sound component organized by Reynard Loki, and a catalogue with a critical text by art historian Eva Diaz.

Curated by Sara Reisman
