2010 News: Book Bombs and other exhibitions

Due to a packed fall schedule, I'm a bit behind on this blog. A series of updates is due. Most excitingly is:


Book Bombs, my collaborative project with Mary Tasillo for Philagrafika 2010, has taken off. Our first bombing took place the first week of January, and another is coming up in the first week of February. To support this project, we have been awarded the Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts Project Stream Grant. We have also been mentioned on WHYY and the Philadelphia City Paper. And next week, we have been invited to take over Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery's Window on Broad, located at 333 South Broad Street in Center City Philadelphia. For images of this project, please visit our blog.


Currently, I am participating in a few other exhibitions. Zoe Cohen, Art Program Manager for the Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education, selected the Migratory Books Project for the juried exhibition Nest and Branch. The exhibition runs to April 2, and you can read about it here.

From February 1-March 12 my work can be seen on the west coast as part of the Page Show at Chapman University's Guggenheim Gallery. Thanks to Rachelle Woo Chuang for inviting me to be a part of it! For anyone on the west coast, please feel welcome to come to the opening reception on February 2 from 5:30-9 PM. The Guggenheim Gallery is located in Moulten Center on Chapman University Campus in Orange, California.

Also in February I will also be part of the exhibition We and Stories, curated by Asa Yoshie, in the new Printmaking Gallery at the University of the Arts. Check back here for information on this soon!


And finally, Issue #26 of the Journal of Artist Books is out, featuring The Hybrid Book Experiment, an article I co-authored with Amanda D'Amico of Tiny Revolutionary Press. Also in the issue see Democratic Organization, by my Book Bombs partner Mary Tasillo. Also check out the most recent issue of Bound and Lettered, which has another version of Democratic Organization by Mary T. Both articles mention the Migratory Books Project. Thanks Mary!
