Description

Experience how artists from diverse backgrounds and viewpoints explore the theme of journey when the Cleveland Institute of Art displays selections from its renowned collection of artists' books.

Metaphorical journeys, actual journeys, and journeys to fictional places are represented in works that date from the 1960s to the present and were created by artists ranging from well-known makers to former CIA students, all of whom turned to the book form, or concept, for artistic expression and experimentation.

CIA’s artists' books collection is a teaching collection of more than 1,550 works and is known for its many classics, including one of the most notable works of the genre, Edward Ruscha’s, “Twentysix Gasoline Stations,” published in 1963. The artists’ books are frequently used by CIA faculty to teach about art and art history and are normally stored in Special Collections, so this is a unique opportunity to view and handle these works of art.

Selections will change weekly and be on view from 9:00 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, from Sept. 30 through Oct. 18.
