“Rutherford Chang: We Buy White Albums
Edition Toronto is excited to be bringing artist Rutherford Chang’s project “We Buy White Albums” to Toronto. For the last 10 years, New York-based Chang has been acquiring first-pressing copies of the Beatles’ iconic 1968 self-titled double album. Conceived by the British Pop artist Richard Hamilton, the record is commonly referred to as the “White Album” because of it’s all-white, minimalist gatefold cover.”

“Since 2008, ten of Toronto’s most dedicated collectors and aficionados of artist’s books, editions and ephemera have been meeting as “Book Club”. At these meetings, the curators, collectors and artists who make up the group share their latest acquisitions with each other in what they describe as “show and tell for book-loving grown-ups.” Members of the group have agreed to do a public “show and tell” of rare and interesting items from their collections. Book Club’s presentation will be a unique opportunity to see and learn about rare artist’s books and editions that usually remain securely under glass when exhibited in galleries and museums.”
