Summer Reading at Center for Book Arts


Summer Reading at Center for Book Arts  

MIDTOWN | NEW YORK | USA JUL 09, 2021 - SEP 18, 2021

Opening in July—the high season of leisure reading and scholastic book challenges—Center for Book Arts presents Summer Reading, an exhibition of works by contemporary artists who take creative approaches to the book, text, and language. The book, in this exhibition, is complemented or subverted, with artists investigating the tradition of artist’s books as an artistic structure, storytelling in visual art, the narrative possibilities of language, the communicative potential of storylines, and the object-ness of material in circulation.In including prints, sculptures, and works on paper that explore the design and aesthetics of language, this exhibition celebrates the relationship between reading and making. Summer Reading extends beyond the gallery walls to include featured reading lists culled by the artist participants and associated lending lists for all ages, developed with our local partner libraries.
