When is a book art ? A current exhibition at LA’s Getty Research Institute explores the many ways in which artists create objects that straddle the worlds of books and art. The show, titled Artists and Their Books/Books and Their Artists presents more than 40 exceptional examples of artists’ books that explode the definition of the “book” . The show aims to engender an open discussion of the roles that books play in contemporary culture. For more information on the exhibition, which runs through October 28th, check out the website.
