The Department of Art is hosting the 2016 College Book Art Association Juried Members’ Exhibition entitled “Backstory: Exploring the Boundaries of the Book” that opens Friday, January 8, with a reception from 5:30 to 8:00 pm. On view through January 15, the exhibit is housed in Space 204 Gallery at the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Arts Center and held in conjunction with the CBAA’s National Conference January 7-9 at Vanderbilt University.
CBAA members were asked to submit works that explored the boundaries of the book using a wide interpretation, including artist’s books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, book installations, performance, broadsides or book works that involve digital media. Submitted works must also possess an interesting backstory: a tale of inspiration, a simultaneous narrative, or story behind production.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. Space 204 is located at 25th Avenue South and Garland Avenue in the Ingram Studio Arts Center on the Vanderbilt campus. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm. On street parking is available along Garland Avenue and in the nearby parking lots.
