Tate Shaw is a book artist interested in the accessibility, connectivity, and ubiquity of digital culture. Utilizing book form, Shaw’s art connects people through ideas, mimicking the way in which information in the digital world is continually reinterpreted through user participation.
Shaw is the director of Visual Studies Workshop (VSW), a center for media arts with an MFA program in visual studies, and co-publisher at Preacher's Biscuit Books—both in Rochester, NY. He is also an artist with work in most major collections for artists' books. In addition, he writes essays, reports, and reviews on artists' books and photography for Afterimage, the Journal of Artists’ Books, Contact Sheet, and the Blue Notebook, amongst other publications. Shaw has an MFA from VSW and a BA from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri.
This event is sponsored by the fine arts department and the Alice Fjelstul Visiting Artist Program.
