Libby Black’s latest work celebrates and honors women visual artists from modern and contemporary eras through re-making books dedicated to their practices. These life-sized books are reproduced from Black’s personal collection as well as from San Francisco State University’s library and the CSU’s inter-library loan service. Viewed spread out on a table, Black stages a conversation between these artists, students, and teachers through the work.
