LEARN TO READ ART
3 July - 6 September 2009, Badischer Kunstverein
Opening: Thursday, 2 July 2009. 7 p.m.
Curated by AA Bronson
Learn to Read Art: A History of Printed Matter features a selection of artists’ books and editions from the history of the independent, non-profit organization Printed Matter in New York. The exhibition was curated by AA Bronson and is the first presentation outside of the USA and Canada. We are extremely pleased that AA Bronson will be present at the opening and that he will introduce his selection for the Badischer Kunstverein!
Ever since its establishment in 1976 by Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Lucy Lippard and others, Printed Matter has focused on the investigation and support of artists’ publications as an independent format of contemporary art production.
