Liverpool Book Art Exhibition 2016
Deadline: 28/02/2016 | Published: 07/12/2015 | Venue: Hornby Room, Central Library | City: Liverpool | Region: Merseyside | Country: United Kingdom | Liverpool Book Art
Liverpool Book Art are excited to announce that we have two major events taking place in the summer of 2016: our second Book Art Exhibition and our third Liverpool Artists' Book Fair. Both events will be held in Liverpool’s spectacular Central Library. The second Liverpool Book Art Exhibition will be on show throughout the whole of June and July 2016. As 2016 is the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare, we invite artists to submit works with a Shakespearean theme. We are planning this to be a selling exhibition, based on the enthusiastic response to our last show! The 3rd Artists’ Book Fair will take place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July 2016. We have chosen these dates as it is the opening weekend of the Liverpool Biennial, when thousands of cultural visitors come to Liverpool. Cross promotion with the Biennial in 2014 was a great success and boost to the profile of the Artists’ Book Fair and Exhibition.
Liverpool Book Art is inviting submissions from artists who wish to participate in the second major Liverpool Artists' Book Exhibition being held in the Liverpool Central Library. As 2016 is the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare, we invite artists to submit works with a Shakespearean theme. We want the exhibition to celebrate excellence and creativity, and to increase interest and appreciation of artists’ books.
The first Liverpool Artists’ Book Exhibition was a fantastic success, attracting international submissions of the highest quality. These were displayed alongside examples of early artists’ works and fine bookbinding from the Library’s specialist collection. In 2016, the Library will organise an exhibition of its own collection of Shakespearean items in the spring. Our Artists’ Book Exhibition will follow on from that.
We are planning this to be a selling exhibition, based on the enthusiastic response to our last show! Based in the Hornby Library, the exhibition will be open throughout the whole of June and July 2016. The exhibition will be available to view during library opening hours (see FAQs) and entry will be free.
