Collecting Artist Books in the US and Europe: Consequences for the Art

November 6, 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


Explore how artists books are collected and used in the United States and Europe.

In her many years buying and selling artist books as a collections consultant, Susanne Padberg, encountered many reasons private collectors as well as institutions have for collecting contemporary artist books and the criteria that guide their choices. These are often based on responses to artist books that are different than one might expect. And they are very different in the US than in Europe. So, if the market for artist books is small is their production influenced by that and does the attitude toward collecting influence content?

The event is part of The Nomads programming at The Center for Book Arts. The Nomads are a new patron group of the Center for Book Arts of young professional and emerging art collectors with a passion for the arts.
