Exhibition Programme – Looking Forward. Ivorypress at Twenty-Five

9 / 03 / 2021

On the occasion of its 25th anniversary, Ivorypress is mounting a multi-institutional exhibition that will take place in museums and libraries across Europe and the United States. Each exhibition engages with the medium of the artist’s book by placing it in dialogue with its host institution’s collection and venue.

These interventions highlight the artist’s book as an artistic medium in contemporary practice and press its capacity to be considered in dialogue with other media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, new media, and archives. The 2021 program will be complemented by a series of public programs that will engage discussions with artists, artisans, curators, craftspeople, and scholars who will delve into the production of the medium as well as explore the role of the artist’s book in contemporary practice.
