DIRECTED: THE INTERSECTION OF BOOK, FILM AND VISUAL NARRATIVE
Through workshops, lectures, panel conversations, film screenings and exhibitions, MCBA's Book Art Biennial invites artists, educators, curators and scholars to explore current issues in contemporary artists' books. This year's Biennial programming explores in depth the common threads between book art and film. Historically as well as in contemporary practice, artists blur and perforate the boundaries between these two disciplines, both of which are time-based and grounded in sequential visual communication. From examinations of contemporary innovations in visual narrative to the influence of classic filmmaking on mid-century book design, the 2013 Symposium will continue a tradition of stimulating critical thinking and dialogue.
The centerpiece of the Book Art Biennial is the presentation of The MCBA Prize. This award is the first to recognize book art from across the field and around the world.
