DESCRIPTION

Booked is a new twist to Knock Knock Contemporary Artists’ Initiative’s annual Women in the Arts exhibition program.  Coinciding with International Women’s Day, (March 8), it is a celebratory event aimed at capturing a snapshot of the diversity of contemporary practice in Book Arts. Booked features book-based sculptural forms, artist books and text-based works from regional, interstate and overseas artists.

 Moving beyond material functionality and their role as a mere vessel of information, the exhibition takes the book into the realms artistic adventure, conceptual endeavour and aesthetic pleasure.
