PSBA is pleased to partner with the Behind the Archives Door Lecture Series at Collins Library to sponsor this presentation.
Alicia has a particular passion for works that include elements beyond surface printed images and text; that move beyond traditional book forms and embrace presentation flexibility, rigid page construction and use of alternative materials. For this presentation, Alicia will bring selections from Abecedarian Gallery’s recent exhibition Content: Artifact as well as some of her own work to share. After a brief overview of her involvement with contemporary book arts, Alicia will talk about specific individual works, their construction, appeal and relevance, with opportunities for questions from the audience and hands on examination of some very special book works.
The presentation will be on November 3, 2015 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. in the Archives Area in Collins Library.
