Archive Bound examines methodologies within the presentation, documentation, historiography, and exhibition display of non-object based and site-specific artworks. Additionally, the exhibition at the Center for Book Arts includes books, photographs, and ephemera associated with Conceptual, Performance, and Site-Specific Art practices. Several first generation avant-garde figures lay the groundwork for a discourse on the contemporary utilization of these crucial genres. A performance series is being held in conjunction with the exhibition at The New School.

On November 21, Frida Kahlo from the Guerrilla Girls presents a performance entitled Guerrilla Girls – Not Ready to Make Nice: Thirty Years and Still Counting. The series continues with a performance by Jacqueline Goss and Jenny Perlin on December 3.

Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of feminist, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. The group formed in New York City in 1985 with the mission of bringing gender and inequality within the fine arts into focus within the greater community. Guerrilla Girls names are pseudonyms generally based on dead female artists. Members goes by names such as Kathe KollwitzAlma ThomasRosalba CarrieraFrida KahloJulia de Burgos, and Hannah Höch. Guerrilla Girls’ “Carriera” is credited with the idea of using pseudonyms as ways to not forget female artists.

Sponsored by the Center for Book Arts and The New School, the performance series is held in conjunction with the Archive Bound exhibition at The Center for Book Arts on view from October 2 – December 12, 2015.

The Center for Book Arts is dedicated to exploring and cultivating contemporary aesthetic interpretations of the book as an art object, while preserving the traditional practices of the art of the book.

Support for the Center for Book Arts’ Visual Arts Program is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by the National Endowment for the Arts.
