      "Voyage Imaginaire"
      Special Collections - Davidson Library
      University of California, Santa Barbara
      January 7-March 28, 2008

      >From January 7 to March 28, 2008, recent artist books published by
      Gunnar A. Kaldewey will be on display in Special Collections, 3rd floor
      Davidson Library, at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The
      exhibit is titled "Voyage Imaginaire: from China to Paris."

      A reading from selected books in the exhibition and a musical
      performance will take place on Tuesday, January 22 from 5-6 pm in the
      Old Little Theatre at the College of Creative Studies (Building 494).
      The performance will feature music from the composer Bun-Ching Lam and
      the baritone singer Thomas Buckner. A reception - with the publisher and
      performers in attendance - from 6-8 pm will follow in the Mary Cheadle
      Room, 3rd floor, Davidson Library.

      In 1985 Gunnar A. Kaldewey - who already had a distinguished career in
      Europe and the
      United States as a rare book dealer - set up a hand press in
      Poestenkill, north of New York City. More than two decades later, he has
      produced over 60 unique limited edition publications in cooperation with
      a number of contemporary artists, including Jonathan Lasker, Mischa
      Kuball and Richard Tuttle. Texts have come from a range of poets and
      writers, including Samuel Beckett, Paul Celan, Marguerite Duras, William
      S. Burroughs, and James Joyce. His work can be seen in many of the
      leading libraries, museums, and private collections around the world
      that concentrate on contemporary artists books. Mr. Kaldewey has visited
      Santa Barbara many times, and his work was included most recently in
      "The Rocket Four: Making Artist Books Today" at the Contemporary Arts
      Forum in 2004.

      Bun-Ching Lam is a distinguished contemporary composer who has received
      several notable awards and recognition for her work, including a
      Guggenheim Fellowship and a Rome Prize. Born in Macao, she now lives and
      works, with Gunnar Kaldewey, in New York and Paris.

      For 30 years Thomas Buckner has won a very special niche -- that of a
      /champion of the avantgarde/. In concert halls throughout the world, his
      "baritone-mastery" has astonished both audiences and critics. Tom has an
      extraordinarily flexible voice, as his experience and ability span
      madrigals, lieder, opera, free improvisation, extended techniques, all
      the way to electronically processed wordless minimalist song. He has
      been featured as a soloist in opera, with orchestra, chamber and in
      recital. He lives and works in New York.

      This exhibit and performance are sponsored by the College of Creative
      Studies, Department of Art, the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center,
      UCSB Libraries, and the Book Arts Program.
