Pertaining to a Structure is a research and curatorial project by Beth Howe and Larissa Beringer that explores the intersections of art and design, collections and context, structure and ideas in and amongst artists’ books.
Pertaining to a Structure : A Conversation in Six Parts is an exhibition that relies on plurality to give an inherent sense of purpose and structure to a conversation. The six conversations build up different layers, making intuitive relationships both physical and conceptual and by facilitating conversations between original works and their references within contemporary artists’ publications. It uses works from the UBC Rare Books and Special Collections and the Artists’ Books Collection at Emily Carr University Library.
