Call for Entries: The Art of the Fold

Wildflower Identification (blizzard book edition made in 2013; edition sold out).

Alicia Bailey of Abecedarian Artists’ Books in Denver announces “The Art of the Fold,” a multi-venue exhibition that will be on view in the Denver metro area from February 2019 through fall 2019. Venues include a public library, a university library, and a gallery. Alicia says she is “still ammering out the gallery details.”

The submission deadline is Monday, December 17, 2018. Full details are here. The prospectus is here.

This exhibition is open to those working in the book form worldwide who are at least 18 years of age.

Eligible are any artist book works created using structures found in The Art of the Fold by Hedi Kyle & Ulla Warchol. Books may be editioned or unique, sculptural or more traditionally bound, interactive or passive. Books that measure more than 14 inches (closed) in any dimension are ineligible. Unframed wall works with maximum dimension of 24 inches in any direction, and weighing less than 20# are eligible.

Please note that the works needn’t be recent because some of us have been working with these structures for a while.

Campfire Cookery (panorama book edition also from 2013; edition sold out).

Selections will be made by Alicia Bailey, Director, Abecedarian Artists’ Books. Alicia typically uses submissions to juried shows as a starting point for artists she’d like to work with in the future. “I’m very much looking forward to seeing what Hedi and Ulla’s book inspires,” says Alicia. “Thanks, as always, for your continued support.”
