Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books

Exhibition dates:

Jeremy May, Grey’s Anatomy, 2012, printed textbook.

Metamorphosis: The Art of Altered Books will feature mixed media artists who carve, gouge, fold, collage, and manipulate books to transform the printed pages into a sculptural object. Exhibited works will explore the materiality of the object, layers of meaning within, communication and cultural connections, design potential, and possible extinction of books in today’s tech-driven world. A partial list of exhibiting artists includes Long-Bin Chen, Andy Hayes, Wendy Wahl, and Jacqueline Rush Lee.
