To inaugurate the opening of the exhibition Between: Artist Books, Albums, and Portfolios from the Mark Ruwedel Photography Archive at Stanford, on view May 27, 2021 through September 26, 2021, please join Standford Libraries Photography curator Peter Blank, in conversation with with Mark Ruwedel, National Gallery of Canada Chief Curator of Photographs Emeritus Ann Thomas, Stanford Professor of History Emeritus Richard White.
Part of the Ruwedel archive project is creating a catalogue raisonné of Ruwedel’s artists’ books, albums, and portfolios. The exhibition will place these smaller, more approachable objects in direct conversations with related materials from the Libraries, including Andre Breton’s Nadja, Carleton Watkins’s mammoth albumen plates, and artist books by Edward Ruscha’s, Gordon Matta-Clark, Man Ray, and many other works
