Event Details:
In China, the folding book has been a very common choice of display for painting and calligraphy, especially in literati culture where the book has occupied pride of place for centuries. Open Books is an international travelling exhibition featuring Chinese folding books. It explores the possibilities of a cross-cultural investigation of Chinese-style bound volumes made by visual artists from the West and China. The exhibition was initially launched in 2012 at the National Library of Wales and also featured at the Sanshang Museum of Contemporary Art in Hangzhou, Logan Regional Gallery in Queensland. It is coming to the Art Museum in December and seeks to show together the diversified works by artists from the United Kingdom, alongside Chinese and Hong Kong artists.
