BUILDING BY THE BOOK: Book Artists Respond to Architecture and Design
As part of Philagrafika 2010: The Graphic Unconscious, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Center for the Book, recently issued a new architecture-focused competition.
The Athenaeum's curators have chosen ten special architecture-design books from their legacy research collections. Any artist/designer residing in the United States is invited to submit proposals for a book that responds to one of the selected books. The proposed book may be editioned or one-of-a-kind, artist books, book objects, altered books or zines. The proposal must be for newly created work, directly responding to one of the ten highlighted books.
Visit www.philaathenaeum.org/ for project details and to view the selected books, chosen from the Atheneum's architecture and design research collections.
Deadline for proposals is September 25, 2009
