2007 Artists in Residence Workspace

An exhibition featuring new work produced here at the Center during their 2007 residency by emerging artists Manuel Acevedo, Yoko Inoue, Rajkamal Kahlon, Catarina Leitao, and Tattfoo Tan. These New York-based emerging artists are offered space, time and support to explore the production and exhibition of artists’ books and related work in two-to-four month residencies. The purpose of this program is to promote experimentation in making book art. The Center especially encourages artists from all disciplinary backgrounds and from culturally diverse backgrounds.
