SAVE THE DATE: Gallery Talk by Buzz Spector at Bruno David Gallery. 
Saturday, September 27 at 3 pm.

Buzz Spector' s excavations of books and reconstructions of libraries are well-known, but his work with found and altered volumes has always been accompanied by works on paper made out of elements from their dust jackets. As Spector has written, " books are formal presentations of text. They have titles, after all, and come jacketed, with paragraphs of introduction slipped between their covers and their pages." This new work features collages made from dust jacket elements in the front gallery, while in the main gallery are larger collages and drawings, a series of wall-mounted sculptures incorporating details of photographs of authors, plus a reinstallation of Frieze, the 60-foot long arrangement of photos of authors Spector showed at the Huntington Museum of Art last fall. Spector 's ongoing meditation on reading and the culture of the book extends here to reflections on how- and when -writers become authors, how work of the imagination is performed via posing, and how the specialized, but also highly conventional, language of dust jacket blurbs can itself be excavated in search of new narrative meanings.
