Learn to Read Art, curated by AA Bronson, includes a selection of Printed Matter’s publishing history of artist books and editions from 1976 to the present. The exhibition features work by John Baldessari, Liam Gillick, Rodney Graham, Martin Kippenberger, Rita McBride, Yoko Ono, Martha Rosler, Lawrence Weiner and numerous others. Printed Matter, based in New York, is the largest non-profit organization dedicated to the examination and interrogation of the changing role of artists’ publications in the landscape of contemporary art. Founded in 1976 by a collective of artists and art workers, it is recognized as an essential voice in the increasingly diversified art world conversations and debates.
