AA Bronson: A History of Printed Matter
September 22, 2008 / AA Bronson presents a history of artist books, Art Metrople, and Printed Matter as part of Learn to Read Art: A History of Printed Matter at Artspeak, Vancouver. The exhibition features a selection of Printed Matter’s archives of artist books and editions from 1976 to the present.
Printed Matter, New York, is the largest non-profit organization dedicated to the examination and interrogation of the changing role of artists’ publications in the landscape of contemporary art. Founded in 1976 by a collective of artists and art workers, it is recognized as an essential voice in the increasingly diversified art world conversations and debates.
AA Bronson is a New York based artist, curator, healer and writer. He is currently Executive Director of Printed Matter and the NY Art Book Fair. In 1969 he founded General Idea with Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal; they lived and worked together for 25 years, founding FILE Magazine and Art Metropole, and exhibiting internationally. Since 1994 AA has had a solo practice, including solo exhibitions at Vienna Secession; The Power Plant, Toronto; Whitney and Montreal Biennials; MCA Chicago, and The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver.
