Endless Editions has partnering with GlassBook Project: Provisions. A collaborative project by artist Nick Kline & Adrienne Wheeler. Provisions is an exhibition of artist books inspired by the recordings of the Krueger-Scott African-American Oral History Collection. The collection consists of over 200 audiocassette recordings of interviews from the african-american families that had migrated from the South to Newark between 1910 and 1970.
The publications in this project were created in Nick Kline's Book Arts course at Rutgers University. Students participating in the project by creating one of a kind, interactive sculptures made of glass in book form directed by Kline's GlassBook Project.
The conceptual and formal elements used by artists in the creation of their sculptural books, were translated by Endless Editions into a limited edition collection of artist publications on paper. This collection includes the original Krueger- Scott questionnaire that was used to conduct the oral history interviews. The revived document printed in colored ink, gives off an informal and less scientifically objectifying conversation.
The Endless Editions Provisions publication is now available for sale at the Endless Editions store in New York City. For more information about the publication and exhibition, visit the Gateway Project website.
The Gateway Project is Reachable from New York City via NJ Transit from NY Penn Station, or NJ PATH from World Trade Center.
