November 6th-January 24th, 2015


New City Galerie presents BOOKBODY, a juried exhibition of art and books relating to book forms and the human body. Artists and authors are exploring the intimate relationship between the human body and the physical book. How do the tactile characteristics of the book impact how our bodies read? How does the body make books? What occurs between this give and take? What is the nature of this symbiosis?

THE JURY: Ben Aleshire, Glynnis Fawkes and Susan Smereka

The BOOKBODY exhibition has two entry sections:

SECTION A: A call for small press, self-published books printed in multiples that contain references to or consider the human body. All forms of fiction, prose, poetry, non-fiction or image based books will be considered.

SECTION B: A call for unique book objects or sculptures that relate to the forms and structures of both the human body and the book.
