One of the most unique voices in artists’ books is right here in South Florida: Claire Jeanine Satin is a contemporary artist who has been working in the book form for decades. JCBA’s spring exhibition samples a cross section of Satin’s artists’ books and related works. The materials are mostly experimental––plastics, metals, monofilament. The overriding concept is one of Chance Operations, a concept informed and influenced by John Cage: chance operations as “a means of locating a single among a multiplicity of answers.” Peering through transparent pages to see a multiplicity of text and images, anything, it seems, is possible, and nothing is as expected.
Meet artist Claire Jeanine Satin on Saturday February 15 from 2 to 5 PM here at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts. No reservations required. Free event.
