Hilo de Vías: Selected Artist’s Books by Dianna Frid from 1997 through 2015

October 20–December 17, 2017 | Milner Library, Floor 6

Discussion with Dianna Frid | October 24, 2017 at 10am | Milner Library, Floor 6

Hilo de Vías presents eight artist's books by Mexican-born, Chicago-based artist Dianna Frid. The artist began to make these books in Vancouver in 1993 under the imprint The Artery Archives. Hilo de Vías, a line from her 2015 book Estructura del Texto, loosely translates from Spanish as "thread of tracks." The artist says that her "long-standing production of one-of-a-kind handmade objects represents an engagement with lineages of craft in a domain that has, for the last several centuries, increasingly been mechanized: first as print and most recently as digital dissemination."

Co-organized by Milner Library Exhibitions Committee and University Galleries. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with IT TAKES TIME, Selected Works from 2009 through 2017, Dianna Frid's concurrent solo exhibition at University Galleries of Illinois State University. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Harold K. Sage Foundation, the Illinois State University Foundation Fund, and MECCPAC, A Dean of Students Office Diversity Initiative. Dianna Frid acknowledges the support she received from the Canada Council for the Arts.

All Milner Library exhibits are free and open to the public.
