Bibilo 2020 | Art Synergy | Art Call
A juried exhibition celebrating the book as art.
Visual artist have for centuries created illuminated manuscripts, visual journals, art books, sculptures and other renditions and interpretations of “book.”
Since antiquity the creation and construction of books, be they bound or loses sheets, has served as an important and vital means of documenting and preserving culture with text and/or imagery.
From the original scrolls of Ancient Egypt created on papyrus to the magnificent sculptural books of Anselm Kiefer created of lead sheets- the book has taken many forms.
