Master Faculty Fellow: Richard Minsky
Material Meets Metaphor
organized by Jae Jennifer Rossman, Assistant Director for Special Collections, Yale University Arts Library
Our Master Faculty Fellowship provides for a luminary in the field to come to the Center to teach a Master Class in conjunction with an exhibition--a small retrospective--showcasing their work. Past Faculty Fellows have included such noted artists as Barbara Tetenbaum, Julie Chen, Johanna Drucker, Susan Joy Share, and Robert Bringhurst.
In 1974, Richard Minsky founded the Center for Book Arts, the first not-for-profit organization in the nation dedicated to promoting the art of the contemporary book.
Minsky's work has not been shown at the Center in over 10 years, thus the presentation of this major body of work is timed to coincide with the Center's 40th anniversary. The installation will feature several key works with unique bindings by Minsky that will serve as a foundation for his Master Class, including the Bill of Rights series, Minsky in Bed, History of Egyptian Mummies, among others.
