Art + Books
17 November until 28 January 2023

“The exhibition explores the art book in all its’ many guises, celebrating the art/artists’ book as a form of collaboration – between art and text and between artists, writers, galleries and publishers. For many years HackelBury has worked with artists to produce art books. Their publishing arm, Imprint, has seen five books produced in collaboration with numerous artists which often document important work which othersie go unseen.

The exhibition highlights a selection of these collaborations including work by Doug and Mike Starn’s ‘Gravity of Light’, the first book to celebrate the full breadth of the Starns’ innovative photography career, Alys Tomlinson’s ‘Lost Summer’, Willy Ronis’ ‘Willy Ronis: The Master Photographer’s Unpublished Album, a photo-book which retraces his career and contributions to photography and photo-journalism. Elliott Erwitt’s ‘Personal Best’ is a collection of photographs spanning his career, gathering together many of his most remarkable images alongside many which have never before been published. ‘Ojeikere Photographs’ explores J.D. Okhai Ojeikere’s photographs of Nigerian hairstyling. Ian McKeever’s ‘Against Photography: Early Works 1976’ was published to accompany the eponymous exhibition and provides a rare opportunity to immerse oneself fully in the dynamic first two decades of his long and distinguished career.

The art book communicates the work of an artist to a mass audience yet provides an intimate experience. It also documents an artists’s career, creating an archive and valuable legacy.”
