BOOKWORKS: Text and Images from the Creativity Explored Archives

October 18, 2014 - January 15, 2015

Venue
San Francisco Public Library - Main Branch

Location
San Francisco, CA

Selection of original Creativity Explored artist zines

BOOKWORKS: Text and Images from the Creativity Explored Archives features a number of books and zines CE artists have produced over the years. This broad survey artist books will be on view in the Grove Street display cases.

BOOKWORKS is divided into three sections: Zines, One-of-a-Kind Books, and Published Works. Zines include the original version of Michael Bernard Loggins’ popular Fears of Your Life zine, which was published by local literary press, Manic D Press. Also included is a collection of Loggins’ other lesser-known zines, as well as Edana Contrera’s somewhat paradoxical “imageless comic,” The Legend of Earl.

CE artist Douglas Sheran’s multi-layered, hand-drawn and painted books as well as Daniel Li’s elegantly minimal compendium of public transportation vehicles rendered in elaborate linework are included in the One-of-a-Kind Books section.

Published Works includes a collection of the larger-run, mass-produced books that showcase the immense creativity of individual studio artists. A unique featured published work is the Tell You What series of mini-zines that recount Creativity Explored artists’ philosophies on art and living as told to New York Times bestselling author Beth Lisick.
