This workshop will be a full-day: 10am-5pm EDT, with a 1-hour break built in.
This workshop with Richard Minsky presents a methodology for self critique, curatorial selection, and criticism based on the balance of material, image and metaphor. Several other critical methodologies for book art are explored. Each participant brings a work for discussion. Artists bring their own works. Curators, critics, collectors, and dealers bring whatever work they would like to discuss.

About the Center for Book Arts:
The Center for Book Arts promotes active explorations of both contemporary and traditional artistic practices related to the book as an art object. The Center seeks to facilitate communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary visual and literary arts, while being a model organization locally, nationally, and internationally within the field. We achieve this through exhibitions, classes, public programming, literary presentations, opportunities for artists and writers, publications, and collecting.
