The genre known as “artist’s books” is not easily defined. People have been making beautiful, artful books for centuries. But “artist’s books” defy convention, and occupy a niche all their own. They come in many shapes and sizes, and the interior “pages” aren’t always paper with text; or contained between two covers. As part of the GAAC’s PaperWork exhibition, we’re in conversation with Wisconsin artist-educator Geo Rutherford. Geo creates prints, artist’s books and more, and focuses on invasiveness, impermanence and the unseen in relation to the Great Lakes. Watch the conversation here.
