Witnessing Through Artists Books: Clarissa Sligh
The Center for Book Arts
Oct. 4, 2023 - Dec. 14, 2019
Clarissa Sligh is a visual artist, lecturer, and essayist. Her photo-text images, artists’ books and installations have been exhibited in museums and Book Arts Centers across the United States.
For over 30 years, Sligh has woven together the cultural, historical, personal and political to explore concepts of memory and transmutation, and perceptions of boundaries and identity: themes that have roots in her own experiences. She is known for her photographic series, artists’ books and text-based installations to explore constructions of history, identities, transformation and change.
During her Faculty Fellowship, Sligh will exhibit a series of past works in the Print Shop Gallery, participate in an Artist Talk in conversation with Deirdre Lawrence on November 7th at 6:30, and will lead a Master Class on November 8th.
