    Book Smart presents student work from three book arts programs: San Francisco Art Institute, Mills College and Oregon College of Art & Craft. The exhibit follows the students' process and creativity from exploring structural models with their instructors up through the resulting artist book. The student's evolution of structure and the layering of compelling narrative is where the work gains a footing all its own.

    Title: Turning Over An Old Leaf: Contemporary Palm Leaf Work in South and Southeast Asia
    Dates: October 25, 2019 – January 19, 2020
    Location: San Francisco Center for the Book, 375 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco, CA
    Website: www.sfcb.org

    For centuries, incising text and images by hand on stacks of dried palm leaves was a dominant way of making books in many parts of South and Southeast Asia. This exhibition looks at new directions in palm leaf work now that printed editions on paper have superseded most of the historical functions of palm leaf manuscripts. Contemporary examples of artworks, manuscripts, and book-like structures from India, Bali, Sri Lanka, Burma (Myanmar), and Thailand will explore current practices of palm leaf work, alongside samples of manuscripts from the historical traditions. The works in the exhibition draw upon multiple research trips by Mary Austin and Betsy Davids.

    “May You Live in Interesting Times”
    A Book as Art Juried Exhibition

    https://nau.edu/artmuseum/prospectus/

    The Northern Arizona University Art Museum announces a juried exhibition to be mounted in Spring of 2020. Open from February 4 until April 18, the exhibition, titled “May You Live in Interesting Times,” will present new works conceived within the conceptual category of the Book as Art, including Altered Books. The Museum invites submissions on significant themes derived from the issues we face here and around the world, including, but not limited to, environmental challenges, politics, immigration, race, and nationalism.

    Our 2020 exhibition will embrace widely varying conceptions of the “book” created in an equally diverse range of media. The Museum is producing this event in the firm belief that, in the age of virtual media, there is still a profoundly powerful effect to be drawn from prolonged interaction with a physical artifact in a “screen-free” environment.
