“LOOK AT THE BOOK” Is a multimedia exhibition that pays homage to “Books.” The exhibition will focus on how contemporary artists have engaged with the book as a surface, structure, found object, philosophical, and literary guide. The works will include various types of books, accordion books, video books and audiobooks, graphic novels, sculpture, photography, and several site-specific installations created with and from books.

These 32 artists, by exploring literacy in their way, will celebrate the changing role of books in the digital age. They will also address issues such as literacy, freedom of speech, banned books, and the evolving role of books. We hope to shed light on the impact of these changes and spur conversations about their implications for society. We’re excited to provide artists and community members a platform to engage with these critical topics through workshops, readings, and performances that will address these issues and hopefully create an ongoing dialogue. We will create art and have panel discussions, community talks, curator tours, and workshops.
