Marshall Weber will present and discuss a variety of artists books and publications represented by Booklyn. This will be an amazing opportunity to view works in a hands-on experience and moreover, a unique opportunity to hear the curator discuss the works and his curatorial practice. Founded in 1999, Booklyn is an artist-run, non-profit 501 (c) (3), consensus-governed, artist and bookmakers organization headquartered in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Booklyn’s mission is to promote artists’ books as art and research material and to assist artists and organizations in documenting, exhibiting, and distributing their artworks and archives. Booklyn’s curatorial practice concentrates on representing work by living artists. Booklyn provides support for artwork that deals with provocative subject matter including environmental, historical, linguistic and political issues. Booklyn also provides opportunities and services for artists who have limited means of distributing or producing their artwork. Booklyn presents alternative voices in a context often reserved for more established artists.
