Now Showing: Book Power Redux
On View in the Gallery Through July 26, 2014
Book Power Redux is an international juried exhibition of book art addressing social and political issues. Artist books can be a powerful vehicle for social change and activism. For this show we sought out works that shine a light on some of the most vital issues of our day: race, diversity, equality, bullying and more.
Book artists have a unique opportunity given an accessible, multi-dimensional, multi-media format that can go beyond just making things to making things happen. The current social and political issues listed above are but a few topics concerned artists used to raise consciousness, call for justice or provoke action. We challenged artists to use their creative powers to solve the problems of the world.
Book Power Redux was juried by Jane Carlin and MalPina Chan and will travel to Collins Memorial Library at the University of Puget Sound from August 5 through October 15, 2014. It will be a featured event during a national conference focused on Race and Pedagogy taking place at the university in September.
