The Center For Book Arts Takes on Politics of Place - Opening Reception


The Center for Book Arts is proud to present the latest exhibition, Politics of Place, curated by Alexander Campos and Monica Oppen. The exhibition will be held from January 18 through March 30, 2019.

From the mechanisms of colonialism, to intractable wars, displacement has become a catalyst to a contemporary discourse surrounding belonging, homeland and nationhood. Politics of Place highlights artist books, mainly from Australia and North America, both new world territories that share parallel histories, to explore the issues centered in indigeneity, enslavement, & conflict-caused immigration. These issues reflect the undercurrent of political motives and decisions often decentering and ignoring the voices of those displaced.

Meet the artists and curators at the opening reception on January 18th at 6:30 pm.

Roundtable discussions will be held on January 25 and February 28, 2019 at 6:30 pm.
