artists books @ the Griffith Centre for Creative Arts Research

  .… the emergence of artists books in the twentieth century as a medium that engages the breadth of our senses was underpinned by collaborative practice between poets, artists and designers within print culture. This intersection between the fields of fine art, literature and design facilitated by the printed book continues to attract interest across the creative arts. Responding to the fields emerging critical discourse GCCAR has established a research focus that contributes to that discourse through creative practice and writing. Textured by 'the haptic' and print culture, this focus embraces the production, reception and evaluation of artists books within the antipodes. In keeping with the haptic
the nature of the focus is dynamic, responding to the surfaces of the field.

To date that research includes; 
abbe
- the artists books brisbane events featuring academic conferences, artists book fairs & exhibitions
the publication of peer reviewed articles and essays as in JAB39 (the Journal of Artists Books)
dcccp - a series of collaborative publishing events featuring invited & visiting artists or scholars
