Gen Harrison and Cathey Webb in Nature Works – Artists’ Books exhibition, Edinburgh

MAMDP alumna Gen Harrison and Cathey Webb have artists’ books for sale in the exhibition ‘Nature Works – Artists Books’ at the Upright Gallery, Edinburgh, from 3rd-24th December 2021.

From Upright Gallery website: Artists have been active in printing and book production for centuries. Artists’ books have appeared in a wide range of forms, from the traditional codex to scrolls, fold-outs, concertina and loose leaf, and were adopted by movements such as Dada, Constructivism and Fluxus.

Following hard on the heels of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021, Upright Gallery invited artist book makers to submit work on the theme of climate change. Artists approached the brief in a wide variety of ways but always with a climate change message contained within their artworks. Nature Works features a broad selection of artists’ books by over 30 makers spread across three continents. 

The exhibition was co-curated with Edinburgh-based artist Susie Wilson. A pdf catalogue of all the works for sale is available from the gallery.
