Women’s Autobiographical Artist Books
September 22, 2016
New book by alum, artist, and publisher Antonia Pinter
Artist and publisher Antonia Pinter launches her new publication, Women's Autobiographical Artists' Books this evening at 6:30pm at Publication Studio (717 SW Ankeny), a publishing house and bookstore she runs with Patricia No. Pinter received her BFA in Printmaking from PNCA.
At the launch, there will be a talk and panel discussion with curators and artists including Leslie Fedorchuk, Pamela Zwehl-Burke, Stephanie Snyder, Heather Watkins, and Blair Saxon-Hill. Both the original WAAB book by Leslie Fedorchuk and Pamela Zwehl-Burke will be for sale as well as the new WAAB compiled by Antonia Pinter. This is the second edition of Pinter's book. There will also be a small selection of artist books on view.
WAAB is a bibliography, a catalog, an artist book, and a project that aims to validate, support, and explore contemporary women’s autobiographical artists’ books. It is inspired by the exhibition catalog and artist book of the same name which was published in 1987 on the occasion of the exhibition at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee Art Museum Fine Arts Galleries, curated by Pamela Zwehl-Burke and Leslie Fedorchuk. This project is directly influenced by the original curators’ intent: to consider the form of the artist book as a means for women artists to produce a physical, extended, or even new and experimental narrative of herself, to ask politically driven questions about a female position in the art world and in publishing, and to level the playing field in the predominantly male-heavy art world that typically cares for its own.
Pinter received funding for her project the Precipice Fund, which is administered by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art and is part of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts' Regional Regranting Program, with additional support from the Calligram Foundation / Allie Furlotti.
