Elisabeth Tonnard, an artist and poet working in the areas of artists’ books, photography, and conceptual literature, will present a talk about her art on Wednesday, October 10, at noon in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections on the fifth floor of Carlson Library on UT’s main campus.
Since 2003, Tonnard has published 25 books, which are included in numerous private and public collections. Her work features how visual culture and visual events are seen in the light of literature. Tonnard’s books have won numerous awards, including the jury prize of the Sheffield International Artists’ Book Prize last year. Her works have been exhibited widely, and she is a member of the Artists’ Book Cooperative.
Tonnard received a master’s of arts in literature from Radbound University in the Netherlands, and a master’s of fine arts from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York. She lives and works in the Netherlands.
A reception will follow her talk. This talk is co-sponsored by the Friends of the University Libraries. For more information, contact David Remaklus, Carlson Library, at 419-530-4030.
