Ezio Gribaudo (b. 1929) is an artist and art publisher who
lives and works in Turin. By assimilating into his artistic
trajectory the job of art publisher, in which capacity he
worked with some of the major figures in modern and
contemporary art, Gribaudo developed a series of impactful
publishing ideas that influenced his artistic output, part of
which was forged in dialogue with different printing machines
and mechanisms. He created books for the most important
Italian publishers. More than thirty monographs on artists
were published under his direction in the series Le Grande
Monografie for Fabbri Editori (1966-1990), and which
included monographs on such major artists as Karel Appel,
Francis Bacon, Alberto Burri, Giorgio de Chirico, Marcel
Duchamp and many others. Like an illustrated glossary of key
terms, Gribaudo developed his work through the articulation
of a number of basic themes, starting with his Flano (Flong)
and Logogrifo (Logogriph) works. This publication, made in
conjunction with the eponymous exhibition curated by Lilou
Vidal at Etablissement d’en Face, in Brussels, unfolds as a
sampling object: it features a selection of works sourced in
Gribaudo’s bookmaking and the knowhow it requires; the
latter not only defined the modular aesthetic and graphic
process specific to his oeuvre, but also fostered an
autonomous and independent creative freedom that was
auspicious for experimentation. Designed by Boy Vereecken
and Antoine Begon.
