Closing Reception, Friday, July 26 for The Contained Narrative Show

I'm in a show at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts' MCBA Star Tribune Foundation Gallery in Minneapolis. The show is called The Contained Narrative: Defining the Contemporary Artists' Book, and was curated by Cathy Ryan. A link to it is here.

I am very happy to be in such good company; it is quite a show. The show itself opened on April 8 and closes this coming Sunday, July 26, 2015. However, the Closing Reception is this Friday, July 24th between 6 and 9 pm, and is being held in conjunction with the MCBA Book Art Biennial. The Biennial is a wonderful event and the finalist for the competition will be chosen this week. I was one of the jurors for this event four years ago. It attracts stellar work from all over the world.

The Contained Narrative is divided up int categories: The Book, Bound and Unbound; The Virtual Book; The Book as Environment/Environment as Book (this is the category that my book Sanctus Sonorensis is in; The Book as Metaphor; The Book as Object; The Book as Score and Performance; and finally The Book as Collaboration and Community.

If you are in the Minneapolis or St Paul area, please go by the reception if you have a chance. MCBA, an amazing facility, is located at 1011 Washington Ave. S #100, Minneapolis, MN 55415. Their phone number is 612 215 2520.
