Experiments in Navigation: The Art of Charles Hobson

Exhibition Explores Making of Artist's Books at Two Venues on Stanford University Campus

April 30 - July 6, 2008 at Cantor Arts Center
April 30 - August 17, 2008 at Peterson Gallery, Green Library, Stanford, California 

The Stanford University Libraries and the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University present the exhibition "Experiments in Navigation: The Art of Charles Hobson,” which opens at two locations on campus April 30. Hobson's work explores themes of classical mythology, astronomy, surrealism, shipwrecks, and love affairs of famous historical figures, among other topics, through the medium of the artist's book.

The exhibition presents Hobson's art and artistic process, with a different focus at each of two locations. Through July 6, 2008 in the Lynn Krywick Gibbons Gallery at the Cantor Arts Center, four of Hobson's book works are displayed with larger works on paper that he created in conjunction with each book. “Parisian Encounters” (1994), “Andromeda Imagined” (1998), “Writing on the Body” (1999), and “The Writer” (2004) are shown along with monoprints, photogravures, drawings, and collages.
