Pop-Up Now II
On view through December 17, 2016

23 Sandy Gallery is pleased to present Pop-Up Now II, a juried exhibition of pop-up and movable artist books. Pop-up books captivate and excite the child in all of us. They come to life as three-dimensional works of art hidden inside the pages of a book. Pop-Up Now II showcases handmade artist books that pop-up, move, slide, twirl, whirl, and even light up. One of the best aspects of book art is the opportunity to push the definition of movable books and tackle deeper subjects. It’s easy to make a whiz-bang pop-up, but book artists are very adept at pushing further and rounding out the book with more context. We are thrilled that so many artists were inspired to make pop-up and movable books that tell a bigger story.
