Welcome: Page by Page

February 20 – April 10, 2016
Gallery Reception: Saturday, February 20, 2016, 5-7pm

Welcome: Page by Page, curated by CPW’s new Executive Director Hannah Frieser, showcases artist books by an international cadre of photographers. The exhibition examines the art form of the small-edition book as a poignant expression of personal vision. CPW invites the viewer to come to the relaxed setting of the newly updated gallery and engage directly with the art. The viewer is encouraged to handle the highly collectible and sometimes fragile books. The books on display range in topic from a courageous self-examination in the face of cancer to the whimsical exploration of disposable cups. Two artists explores dreams, another finds global truth in the exploration of international travel, while yet another mourns the disappearance of her father-in-law.

The exhibition includes New York State artists Niki Berg, Anna Leigh Clem, Michael Bogdanffy-Kriegh, Scott McCarney, Raymond Meeks, Qiana Mestrich, and Keith Smith. Other artists range from Ekaterina Anokhina (Russia), Antic-Ham (Korea), Joshua Deaner (US), Erika Diettes (Colombia), Susan kae Grant (US), Lauren Henkin (US), Ron Jude (US), Ferit Kuyas (Switzerland), Nate Larson (US), Diana Matar (UK), Kevin Miyazaki (US), Carlos Javier Ortiz (US), Marni Shindelman (US), Francis Van Maele (Ireland), Wan-Gyo Yi (Korea), and Philip Zimmermann (US).

Common Sense(s), features a compilation of photozines and related ephemera by over 50 artists. Curated by CPW’s Juan Madrid and artist Carlos Loret de Mola, the exhibition examines what constitutes a “zine” in contemporary photographic practice. This exhibition amalgamates obsessions and issues, structure and chaos, sense and nonsense, into a visual assault reflective of the photozine itself. Artists and publishers include 3 Dot Zine, Adrian Octavius Walker, Akemi Hiatt, Alejandro Cartagena, Amanda Chestnut, Anna Leigh Clem, Bob Civil, Curtis Hamilton, Dan Boardman, David Schoerner, Downgrade Magazine, Ed Panar, Elle Pérez, Empty Stretch, Erica Christmas, Evan Ortiz, Everything Is Collective, Fryd Frydendahl, Ginevra Shay, Halfling Zine, Louie Palu, Mambu Badu, Megawords Magazine, Meghan Boilard, Meron Menghistab, Michael Max McLeod, Michael McCraw, Mohamed Sadek, Oranbeg Press, Papersafe, Patrick Bresnan, Rob Hornstra, Ron Jude, Sasha Phyars-Burgess, Stephanie Segura, Suzanna Zak, Tammy Mercure, Terranova, Trevor Clement, Varvara Mikushkina, and VUU.
