Book Art Biennial Exhibitions

July 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

By Sheila Regan : City Pages : July 20, 2017

Book Art Biennial Exhibitions

Where it’s at: Minnesota Center for Book Arts, 1011 Washington Ave. S., Suite 100, Minneapolis.

What it’s about: The Minnesota Center for Book Arts is having not one, not two, but seven different exhibitions as part of its Book Art Biennial, taking place all around the Open Book center. That includes a poster art show organized by Amos Paul Kennedy Jr., a zine reading lounge in the main gallery, a “Water is Life” collection curated by local Anishinaabe poet Heid E. Erdrich, a readers’ art show curated by Susan Hensel and Jeff Rathermel, the “End of Times 2” featuring letterpress art about the apocalypse, an exhibit about the art of resistance through the use of postage and correspondence by MCBA’s S. Helmes and the W. Gaglione Rubber Stamp Archive, and, lastly, “Meander,” featuring work by Alyssa Baguss.

Why you should go: There’s a reason Minneapolis is known as a top literary city in the country. It’s because of stuff like this. Meet book nerds, book artists, creators, and lit lovers who will come out for an evening of fun featuring a sweeping cavalcade of book-art delights.

When: 6-9 p.m. Friday.
