     UWM Art History graduate students are curating an exhibition which explores the space of the artist book, in particular the dynamic relationship between image and text.  The show will highlight a trend or movement away from the use of text in the space of the book, relying instead on imagery, sequence and formal structure as primary means of the transmission of ideas.  In the book, what does an artist’s privileging of image over text reveal about new concepts of pictorial and verbal communication?  In this spirit, artists are called to submit original works that interrogate the fluctuating relationship between image and text in the book by responding to influential works of literature, including but not limited to poetry, prose, memoir, and journalistic writings.  The exhibition will be held in the UWM Art History Gallery, April 7-21, 2011.
