How to Avoid Modernism – Ulises Carrión

Pencil on Graph paper. 2012

Ulises Carrión is credited with being one of the first artists to write a general theory about artists’ books. His influential essay, ‘The New Art of Making Books,’ written in 1975, analyzes the traditional form of books in the context its tactile, visual, and intellectual merits. Carrión’s work with visual and concrete poetry expanded the use of the book as a medium for artistic expression that uses the page as an alternative gallery space.
