Takesada Matsutani. drop in time Book Lab

29 Sep 2018 – 1 Jan 2019

About

Programmed alongside the exhibition ‘Takesada Matsutani. drop in time’ at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, this Book Lab is inspired by Matsutani’s interaction with books and takes the ‘artist book’ as its subject. Included in the Book Lab is a selection of the artist’s prints dating back to his time at Atelier 17 where the artist worked as an assistant to Stanley William Hayter. In addition, there will be a series of events inspired by the exhibition and Book Lab, which includes a symposium exploring print and a series of education days.

Building upon Hauser & Wirth’s curatorial and publishing activities, the Lab presents thematic installations, displays, and programming that invite reflection, creative thinking, and further conversation about the world of printed matter and its connection to artists’ ideas and objectives.
