A year and ahlf ago I had the pleasure of TAing for a class called "Text Off the Page" at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The class features a gallery show at the end of the semester along with a response reading. We made a book of the work featured in that show that you can look at here. Then, last fall, I was invited to write a response to one of the pieces in the 2008 show, and that whole show, including part of my response, can be found here.
These are really incredible publications representing what were terrific gallery show/ response nights. Go flip through the books if you havea minute. There are lots of gorgeous color photos. Finally something ultra-browsable to share.
