Place brings together 38 artists from NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland to explore the theme of place in their artists’ books, whether a physical location or a place of their imagination.
Artists’ books, or book works as they are also referred to, are part of most artists’ vocabulary, either as drawings bound together, illustrated diaries or a response to a place, time, political or historical event, or personal emotion.
More than 30 artists were asked to submit new or exhibited work. All have exhibited previously, and many have books in collections both nationally and internationally.
Place presents a substantial body of high-standard artists’ books covering a wide range of styles and structures.
