Structures and Stories: Contemporary Book Arts
Structures & Stories investigates artists' books in expressive and unique structures – from traditional scroll, accordion and codex, to pop-up, tunnel and carousel books. Three dozen culturally diverse artists, many of national stature, exhibit more than 50 works that are sculptural and kinetic excursions into printmaking, photography, collage and papermaking.
Experience their personal stories about ethnicity, race, gender and identity. View stunning creations that explore home, family and community. Explore a rotating selection of self-published artist books and "zines," or homemade magazines. Students can even express themselves by submitting their own "zines" to share in the exhibit.
