Open, and Closed: The Book Art of John Frederick Walker, February 11 – April 3, 2016  


Interrupted History, 2010-11. Mixed media.   

The book persists in a digital age that threatens to render it extinct. Artist John Frederick Walker
presents another way to look at this remarkable object, an alternative visual experience of the act
of reading to make us think about the surround of meanings books possess.  This exhibition
includes a selection of the artist’s mixed-media, sculptural and one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect
on the printed book.

Balcony Cases, Through April 3
