Center for Book Arts is pleased to present Kumi Korf: A World of Her Own. Korf is a painter, intaglio printmaker, book artist, and architect. This retrospective presents more than 25 works from Korf’s decades-long and multi-layered career — including 14 artists’ books — combined with selected prints, assemblages, and costumes.

Korf is an American artist born in Japan, whose artwork is informed by personal memories, including her childhood during World War II, and nature. Korf’s artists’ books in particular reveal her personal sense of structure and storytelling.

This retrospective is co-curated by Catherine Alice Michaelis (Associate Director of the Cynthia Sears Artists’ Books Collection, Bainbridge Island, WA), and Greg Robinson, Chief Curator of Bainbridge Island of Art, with support from Camilo Otero (CBA Artist Programs Manager).
