..... the call for the artists book community to contribute to the development of tools essential for critical discourse continues to resonate within the field. The nature of these tools needs to ensure that as artists books recognition as a distinct creative discipline grows the dynamic nature of the field is not constrained.
The abbe conferences (artists books brisbane events) were established by GCCAR to contribute to that critical language and to sustain the dynamic nature of the field. Academic papers, presentations, exhibitions and artists books fairs all contribute to critical discourse on the production, reception and evaluation of artists books.
