Call for artists at the Everson for Fit to be Bound

The Edge of Art: New York State Artists Series "Fit to be Bound"

The Everson Museum of Art is accepting submissions for 2010 exhibition, Fit to be Bound. The deadline for submissions is February 1, 2010. The prospectus can be downloaded from everson.org.

Fit to be Bound will be presented at the Everson Museum of Art April 24 - July 11, 2010.

In 2010, the Everson Museum of Art introduces The Edge of Art: New York State Artist Series as an alternative to the traditional Biennial Exhibition. Fit to be Bound, the second exhibition in a series of four will showcase a broad range of artist books created by artists currently living in New York State-the first survey of its kind at the Everson.

The exhibition will be an exploration of the various means by which contemporary artists have expanded the notion of the book form, from the traditional to the sculptural, from paper to mixed-media, small-scale and oversized. New York artists working in all media are encouraged to submit new work for the exhibition which will include between 20-30 works of art.

The jurors for Fit to be Bound are Everson Senior Curator, Debora Ryan, Peter Verheyen, book artist and conservator at Syracuse University Special Collections, and Hannah Frieser, Director of Light Work, Syracuse, NY. Final selections will take place February 1-15, 2010.
