EXHIBITIONSpanning a wide range of publishing contexts, this survey exhibition, curated by David Schulz, explores different ways that book-forms and design strategies engage photographic content by looking at various structural and perceptual motifs, such as series, index, and narrative. It is also a consideration of publishing beyond the book that utilizes new media technologies and underscores the shift in a work’s self-reflexivity from it’s physical nature (in codex-form) to aspects of it’s distribution (in new media forms).
