Please join us at READ Books for the launch of Andrew Dadson’s artist book Visible Heavens from 1850 – 2008.


In this striking volume, Vancouver artist Andrew Dadson presents a photocopy of a found star map from 1850 and then one subsequent, slowly degrading, copy for each year leading up to 2008, documenting the changes from an accurate nineteenth century vision of the stars to an abstracted blackness depicting “heaven” today.


Edited by Kathy Slade. Published by the Emily Carr University Press and JRP|Ringier with generous support from Galleria Franco Noero and the Rennie Collection
