Description

Lecture with Bea Nettles

Evolution of a Photographic /Poetry Book Collaboration: Bea and Grace Nettles
Saturday, October 27, 2012 1:00 p.m.


Join us for this lecture with Fine Art Photographer, book artist, bookbinding teacher, and Professor Emerita at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Bea Nettles . In 1972, Nettles created her first book using mixed-media collages paired with poetry by her mother Grace. Their long collaboration makes an excellent study of the changing technologies, aesthetics and distribution methods in photographic book production, evolving from limited edition and personally printed hand-bound offset books in the 70’s, to self-published commercially printed titles in the 80’s, to digitally designed print-on-demand publications. This lecture and poetry reading comes from the unique perspective of an artist who has embraced and adapted the technologies of publishing, enabling her work and the words of a profoundly moving poet to reach an international audience.
