    In Conversation: The Fluid and The Concrete

    Artists Book Exhibition Curated by Cynthia Nourse Thompson  

    March 15 – April 9, 2022  

    Closing reception: Wednesday, April 6, 2022, 5:00 – 7:00 pm  

    This exhibition presents an exquisite selection of contemporary artists books published by Sue Gosin, president of Dieu Donne Press and co-chair of Dieu Donne Papermill in New York.   

    Each work on view is produced as a collaboration between papermaker, bookbinder, visual artist and poet, and illustrates the rich and notable developments in the field of modern hand papermaking. The fluid sensibility of this medium alone offers unlimited realizations as the foundation for encompassing a variety of techniques, processes, and aesthetics. Thus, this exhibition celebrates the power and artistry of both the book form and the visual and written word. Artists in the exhibition include Lesley Dill with poetry by Tom Sleigh, Jane Hammond with poetry by Raphael Rubenstein, William Kentridge with poetry by Wislawa Szymborska, Abbey Leigh with writings by W. H. Auden, Michele Oka Doner with her own writing, Mark Strand with his own writing and imagery along with poetry from many other writers, and Eliza Kentridge with her own writing and imagery. The exhibition will also feature work by Sue Gosin.
