NewLights Press MLKNG SCKLS broadside at The Center for Book Arts (NY)

The Center for Book Arts (NY) is pleased to announce the Summer 2010 exhibition, Poems & Pictures: A Renaissance in the Art of the Book (1946-1981). This exhibition, organized by Kyle Schlesinger, examines the fundamental relationships between: form and content; visual and language arts; seeing and reading; and the miraculous occasions when these relationships blur. The major presses featured in this exhibition were established between 1945 and 1980, and some are still in operation. Together they share in the common objective of bringing bold new writing into print where commercial presses fear to tread, and to do so with flair, imagination, and intelligence.

The exhibition features over 60 books produced between 1946 and 1981, as well as paintings, collages, periodicals, and ephemera. Poets, artists, and collaborators include Wallace Berman, Joe Brainard, Robert Creeley, Jim Dine, Johanna Drucker, Philip Guston, Joanne Kyger, Emily McVarish, Karen Randall, Larry Rivers, George Schneeman, and many more.
