RISING TOGETHER | an Exhibition of Artists’ Books, Prints and Zines with a Social Conscience
April 18- June 29, 2019
A traveling exhibit organized by the College Book Art Association
Rising Together showcases the potential of the book arts to engage—through messaging, through critique, through action—and to speak truth to power in an era when such truth is dire.
The work in Rising Together demonstrates how artist books give activism a visual voice, and can serve as powerful agents in effecting positive social change on issues encompassing social justice, power, politics, the environment and more.
Rising Together is a traveling book arts exhibition organized by the College Book Art Association and hosted from 2018 – 2021 in conjunction with the Art Center College of Design, Center for Book Arts, Mills College, San Francisco Center for the Book, University of Iowa, University of Puget Sound, and the University of Utah.
Opening Reception: April 18, 2019, 6:30 pm
Curator Talk: May 9, 2019, 6:30 pm – Alison Karasyk will be in conversation with Rising Together’s organizer, Camden Richards.
Support for the Center for Book Arts’ Visual Arts Program is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
