Sunday, March 8 2:00 – 4:00pm Petersen Classroom Free; limited capacity Register at bit.ly/AliciaBaileylecture Presented by Alicia Bailey, owner of Abecedarian Gallery and jurist for Beyond Words: Contemporary Book Arts. Artists’ books can be full of surprises. They are interactive, flexible, richly textured, can be noisy when read, maybe even light up when opened. When they are seen online, or in exhibit catalogs or books, most of their special qualities are inaccessible. Even in when seen in exhibitions, the works are often in protective cases or do not invite touch. Bringing books from her own collection, or lent by the artists she represents, Alicia will give the audience a chance to experience select artists’ books ‘hands on’. About the speaker: Alicia Bailey is an exacting artist who works in — but isn’t limited to — the book arts, which are the original focus of her Abecedarian Gallery in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe. Creator and curator, Bailey displays a rare attention to detail, difficult processes and the intellectual and personal intimacies tucked between the pages of artist books, prints and box installations. Bailey adheres to that private branch of artistry that is partly scientific in nature; like an art librarian, she amasses work by artists of a similar mind from across the nation.
