Morocco travels

We’re delighted that the CSAD Level 5 Field project students could explore our Artists’ Books Collection before their journey to Marrakesh in January. As their Lecturer, Chris Glynn said “students inspired, seeds sown”. Job done! We’re even more delighted that their resulting work is now on display on the ground floor of Llandaff Library. On show until 24th April.

Greater New York Series: new books

MoMA PS1

MoMA PS1 presents the fourth iteration of Greater New York. Recurring every five years, the exhibition has traditionally showcased the work of emerging artists living and working in the New York metropolitan area. Considering the “greater” aspect of its title in terms of both geography and time, Greater New York, begins roughly with the moment when MoMA PS1 was founded in 1976 as an alternative venue that took advantage of disused real estate, reaching back to artists who engaged the margins of the city. In conjunction with the exhibition, MoMA PS1 is publishing a series of readers that will be released throughout the run of the exhibition. These short volumes revisit older histories of New York while also inviting speculation about its future, highlighting certain works in the exhibition and engaging a range of subjects including disco, performance anxiety, real estate and newly unearthed historical documents.

Currently on display – 2nd floor Llandaff library. Hover over an image to see the shelf mark.

Artists’ Books for World Book Day

Looking forward to showing some of our artists’ books at Cyncoed Campus tomorrow as part of the library’s World Book Day celebrations.

poster-display-2017

The Library’s Artists’ Books Collection is growing rapidly, with now over 350 books. The term ‘Artist’s Book’ refers to books made or conceived by an artist – artworks in their own right.

Whilst many contemporary books have been bought for the collection, others have been donated or moved from the main shelves of the library into the Special Collections. From these we find that we have books representing each of the decades since the 1960s.  To celebrate this – that our collection covers fifty of the 150+ years of Cardiff Metropolitan University – we feature examples from across those fifty years.
