Book of Lies

Eugenia P. Butler (1947-2008) played a formative but often overlooked role in the inception of American Conceptual art. Book of Lies is a collaborative project with works by seventy-six contributing artists, curated by Butler’s daughter, Corazon del Sol, and distributed for exhibition by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Programs.

Book of Lies is an examination of how we use “the lie to explore our relationship with the truth.” Before her death in 2008, Butler held three artist dinners, where she asked her guests to consider the questions “What is the lie with which I am most complicit?” and “What is the truth that most feeds my life?” A wide range of artists and poets responded in unique and provocative ways.

Each contributing artist hand-made eighty versions of their artwork, which were then compiled into limited-edition artists’ books. The exhibition showcases these works as framed articles, but their significance is bound to their essentially interactive and tactile nature. The pieces themselves resonate with the time, love, and laborious processes that played a critical role in their creation. The project as a whole serves as a testament to Butler’s vision of “recalibrating” oneself to distinguish the truth within from the lies that surround us.
