About Exhibitions

CBA curates a robust program of exhibitions and artist projects that actively explore artistic practices related to the book as an art object and are relevant to greater cultural and historical contexts and conversations.

Visitors in compliance with our Covid-19 health & safety policies are welcome to visit Center for Book Arts (28 W 27th St, 3rd Fl) to view exhibitions anytime during our regular business hours, no appointment necessary! CBA is open Monday – Friday from 11am–6pm and Friday & Saturday from 11am–5pm. Admission is free with a suggested donation.

All visitors are required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination upon arrival and wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times while on-site. If you have a medical or religious exemption to the vaccine, please contact CBA Executive Director Corina Reynolds at corina@centerforbookarts.org in advance of your visit.

CBA frequently offers in-person or online events related to our exhibitions including tours, artist talks, and workshops.

CBA produces limited edition catalogs for select exhibitions that are available for sale in our bookshop.

Historical exhibition records can be accessed by toggling from current to past in the list below, or visit the Exhibition Archive, our Exhibition Data Site for 1974 through 2009.

CBA welcomes exhibition proposals from independent curators and artists. We also exhibit work by our Artist Members.

Support for CBA’s visual arts programming is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

We also rely on the support of our community to continue our exhibition programming. Please consider making a donation in support of Center for Book Arts exhibitions! Donate–>
