OPSLAG NEDSLAG – Danish Artists’ Books
Time: 30 September 2016 – 11 March 2017
Location: The Royal Library, The Black Diamond, Copenhagen, Denmark
“A large exhibition at The Black Diamond shows a Danish overview of the growing genre of artists’ books for the first time.
Through a series of cross-sections the exhibition OPSLAG NEDSLAG shows works from six decades – books by great artists as Asger Jorn, Per Kirkeby, Sven Dalsgaard and Tal R, as well as a quantity of entirely new works by Amalie Smith and Lea Porsager among others.
An artists’ book is not a book about art, but rather a book as art. The art book is a creation in itself and can at the same time function as a presentation series that illustrate expressions such as photos, drawings, graphics and texts.”
