On the occasion of Ivorypress’ 25th anniversary, the Warburg Institute is thrilled to display one of their unique artist’s books: Sir Anthony Caro’s Open Secret (2004). It is a work that is sculptural and literary at the same time, questioning our traditional understanding of both books and sculpture. Unpublished archival material, including correspondence between Caro and Ivorypress, will accompany the display and offer an insight into the process of the making and commissioning of the artwork.

On Monday 30 May, we were delighted to launch the exhibition in our Library Reading Room, which was curated by Valerie Maasburg (Ivorypress), Bill Sherman, and current Warburg MA students in Art history, Curating and Renaissance Culture Eleanor Lerman, Lydia Riley, Isabella Schwarzer and Francisco de Borja Herraiz Garcia de Guadiana.
