About

Jenny Monick, 5 Posters, 5 doubled-sided offset prints, 15.25 x 21.5" each, Edition of 250, Published by Space Sisters Press, 2018

Opening at OyG on Saturday, October 20, 2018, during the weekend of Gowanus Open Studios, SPINE explores the mental and physical structures of a book and questions what is legible, optical, physical, emotional or cerebral. Reading is viewing and occurs any time anyone engages with visual art but it also happens when we’re handling and engaging with books as objects. Printed media lives in the realm of the physical and the private with a spine functioning as an interruption, an intersection, a fulcrum and a central structure, often simultaneously. The work presented in the exhibition questions when does the private act of reading become public and what is shared.

SPINE brings together a wide range of media, including drawing, photography, sculpture, video, fiber, multiples and artist books. Please join us for the opening with the artists and curators on Saturday, October 20th, 6 - 9pm. The exhibition will be on view October 20 - December 2, 2018.
