  • STEVEN LEIBER CATALOGS: EXHIBITION

    STEVEN LEIBER CATALOGS: EXHIBITION

    STEVEN LEIBER CATALOGS: EXHIBITION
    Curated by David Senior
    October 10 - November 30, 2019
    Opening Reception: October 10th, 6-8pm

    Printed Matter
    231 11th Avenue, New York, NY 10001

    Between 1992–2010, Leiber produced a total of 52 dealer catalogs from his cellar-level bookstore and gallery ‘Steven Leiber Basement’. The published catalogs were meticulous reference documents of Leiber’s for-sale offerings, featuring important ephemeral works documenting conceptual art and other avant-garde movements. They were also ambitious experimental art projects in their own right, each published in a unique/unconventional format—scrapbooks, scrolls, tabbed folders, portfolio sets, card catalogs—and produced in homage to a different historic publication or multiple, including Wallace Berman’s Semina, Ray Johnson’s Correspondence Catalog, and Art & Project’s Bulletin, among many others.
     
    Taken cumulatively the works invite a nuanced understanding of Leiber’s work as an archivist/dealer in personal dialog with the material he collected and sold, while positioning Steven Leiber Basement as a living, conceptual project. Leiber’s own archive-worthy output of ephemera is of interest both for its exhaustive historical record and as an intensely creative project that collapsed the space between archivist, artist and archive. 
     
    Printed Matter will host the most extensive and complete exhibition of Steven Leiber’s catalogs and ephemera produced to date.

    Printed Matter, Inc. is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1976 by artists and art workers with the mission to foster the appreciation, dissemination, and understanding of artists' books and other artists' publications.
