In conjunction with the Blanket Impressions Exhibition & Symposium titled “Social Values and Available Means”

FW Olin Library at Mills College

Johanna Drucker will speak about the “longstanding engagements Brad Freeman and Clifton Meador have had with artists’ book production using offset, photographic techniques from mechanical to digital, and other available means of production. What is the relation between the media of production and the social values and content of their works? How have these changed in the course of the careers of these two artists, each of whom is keenly interested in social history, cultural events, art as critical engagement and commentary? Are social values and production values related in the book arts? If so, in what way and how can we understand this by talking about specific books created by either Meador or Freeman?”
