The diverse breadth of artists’ books creative and research practice has for some time now exceeded the scope of any single research project investigating the field. This diversity will continue expanding as material books by artists of all fields continue to attract the attention of academic disciplines as well as the pubic.

Inflection exemplifies this diversity at the same time as clarifying that print culture and the haptic are shaping the artists book research focus at the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research (GCCAR). Produced by staff and post graduate students from Queensland College of Art the books in this exhibition are printed, drawn, painted, altered, cut and set, all of which resist being summed up by a passing glance.

They remain opaque unless you touch them, spend time with them, unless you let them effect you as you effect them. The underlying role of the haptic in them will be addressed by Dr Tim Mosely in a lecture supporting the exhibition at the CFPR.

Showing at the Print Centre, C-block, Centre for Fine Print Research, University of West England, Bristol, UK.

28th June – 12th July 2016, with the public lecture on the 30th June. Contact Sarah Bodman to book a place for the free lecture:
