In Strip, snapshot photos of Hollywood Boulevard's Walk of Fame reel and collide, resulting in random but systematic juxtapositions of street performers and gawking tourists. As the reader turns the pages of Kathryn Andrews' (born 1973) first artist book, rows of images-much like film strips-become visible, shifting left and right within the picture window of the book page. Ultimately this three-dimensional, layered world is lost as a new image of a fragmented Hollywood emerges from the book's chance encounters. Following in the great artist book tradition of John Baldessari and Edward Ruscha, the UCCA has called on Kathryn Andrews along with LA artists Aaron Curry, Alex Israel, Matthew Monahan, Sterling Ruby, Ryan Trecartin, and Kaari Upson to make individual artist books for The Los Angeles Project in Beijing.
