Masthead - The Press

About The PressThe Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design was established in 1972 as a vehicle to publish books by and about leading contemporary artists.

Between 1972 and 1987, 26 titles by such artists as Michael Snow, Steve Reich, Gerhard Richter and Yvonne Rainer were published. Relaunched in 2002, The Press has once again established the university as a source for the publishing of primary documents and scholarly works in the fields of contemporary art, craft and design.

I cannot stress too strongly my gratefulness to the three highly respected writers who have contributed text to this publication. Kenneth Baker, a freelance writer and critic from Providence, RI, gives a sensitive account of NSCAD based on his personal experiences of the college as a visiting lecturer and faculty member in art history. Eric Cameron, the director of the NSCAD MFA program and artist and critic, in recording the history of the Lithography Workshop, centers on an interesting issues surrounding prints in general while giving a careful knowledgeable examination of many of the works in the exhibition. Benjamin Buchloh, formerly on the faculty of NSCAD and editor of the NSCAD Press, now on the faculty of the State University of New York at Westbury, situates the books in the larger context of art book history while thoughtfully showing how the selection of recent and forthcoming Press books relate to changes in recent art.
