A selection of artist made books from around the world and our annual open call. This exhibition promotes and encourages artists’ unconventional ideas about books. We ask artists to explore the book as an object, book-installations, one-offs, author's books, artist's books, writer's books, experimental and limited editions, fine press books and the like. Curated through a number of open calls held internationally and nationally.
This exhibition, works selected will become part of this traveling exhibition.
We live in the 21st century, the century of technology, of computers and mass media, all of which are separating us and our children from the written word.
In a few years, if this direction of our civilized world continues, books will disappear.

REDACTED is an exhibition concept encompassing the sort of editorial decisions that are manifest in myriad representations such as literature, current events, historical documents and aspects of contemporary life in general.
The term "redaction," often used synonymously with "censorship," is complex in meaning. Through multiple redactions literature can be morphed, history rewritten, entire hypotheses obfuscated, disguised, thwarted or converted. The visual brain can be upended with disarming, often thrilling, results. REDACTED will examine how revamped visual information can variously disguise, alter, enhance or camouflage meaning in painting, sculpture, video and photography
