My Gallery is the World Now / Books and Ideas after Seth Siegelaub
Artist and Curator Michalis Pichler's My Gallery is the World Now / Books and Ideas after Seth Siegelaub opens a week from tomorrow at the Center for Book Arts in New York.
The exhibition features works by and about the legendary art dealer, curator, author, researcher and tireless promoter of conceptual art Seth Siegelaub, who died earlier this summer at the age of 72. Many of Siegelaub's best works (such as the classic Xerox Book or One Month) explored the possibilities of the publication as an exhibition space.
Alongside original works by Siegelaub (both hard copies, and digital versions, as available from the Primary Information website), Pichler is presenting contemporary bookworks that respond and refer to Siegelaub's legacy. Participants involved include artists Jonathan Monk, Eric Doeringer and Derek Sullivan, as well as gallerists Florence Loewy, Emmanuel Herve and the late Steve Leiber.
The show runs until the 14th of December at 28 West 27th St in New York. For more information, visit the Center for Book Arts site, here.
