Book Arts Tuesday-Book Power Redux

Book Power Redux, an international juried exhibition of book art focusing on social and political issues, is on view at the 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland, Oregon until July 26. From August 5 – October 15, it will be shown at the University of Puget Sound Collins Library in Tacoma, Washington. Here is a description:

Artist books can be a powerful vehicle for social change and activism. For this show we sought out works that shine a light on some of the most vital issues of our day: race, diversity, equality, justice, bullying, poverty, civil rights, war and more. Book artists have a unique opportunity given an accessible, multi-dimensional, multi-media format that can go beyond just making things to making things happen. The current social and political issues listed above are but a few topics concerned artists used to raise consciousness, call for justice or provoke action. We challenged artists to use their creative powers to solve the problems of the world. Book Power Redux was juried by Jane Carlin and MalPina Chan.

The book shown above is The Cycle of Censorship by Dina Scheel.
