Our premiere issue features an interview with the collaborative duo Kahn/Selesnick. The Artist Project offers a preview of their latest work, Eisbergfreistadt, chronicling the development of their “iceberg free state.”
Regular features also include technique-based artist book tutorials, launched with the step-by-step guide to cyanotype printing by Amy Holmes George; an ongoing feature of text excerpts highlighting written elements from the galleryâ€™s collection of artistâ€™s books that begins with Pamela Mooreâ€™s minimal translucent Incision; and Mindell Dubanskyâ€™s discussion of book shaped pieces from her collection, the first of a series of articles by noted collectors and curators. Other features include annotated listings of ongoing book arts events, spaces and organizations; and projects exclusive to the magazine by well-established and emerging artists alike.
Found within each issue is also a catalog insert documenting Gallery IIâ€™s thematic multi-disciplinary exhibitions. As well as photographs of the artwork and gallery installation, the catalog affords further investigations of these themes with articles addressing the interplay of art and science. Marchâ€™s issue focuses on Astronomy: The Celestial, as the husband and wife team astronomer Greg Matloff and artist C. Bangs, both boasting long-time involvements with NASA and collaborative work, approaches the subject from their differing angles.
CENTRAL BOOKING Magazine is published quarterly, coinciding with Gallery II exhibitions. It can be purchased at single issue or subscription prices.
