The Stewardship of History: Reconfiguring the Markings of Time

Thursday, October 18 at 5:30 pm
Marsh Room, Billings Library
University of Vermont

Michele Burgess will talk about “The Stratigraphic Archives,” a series of eleven linked artists' books, all concerned with the archives of both quiet and cataclysmic events—natural and human made. Working in collaboration with poets, Burgess has interwoven remnants of human and natural history, questioning the honesty and inclusivity of our institutionalized "record keeping."

Michele Burgess works in book arts, printmaking, painting, and sculpture. She is the director of Brighton Press and collaborates with other artists and poets on projects that involve the book as an art medium. Burgess’s books are housed in over seventy-five public collections across the country, including the University of Vermont. They have been exhibited at the Musee d’Art Americain in Giverny, France, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Fresno Art Museum, Cranbrook Art Museum, Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, Oceanside Museum of Art, and the Mingei Museum in San Diego. Burgess teaches in the art departments at San Diego State University and the University of San Diego and has given lectures about her work at the Getty Research Institute and the Library of Congress.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Silver Special Collections at uvmsc@uvm.edu or (802) 656-2138.
