Fun & Games (and such…)

Organized by Alexander Campos, CBA’s Executive Director and Julie Chen, Artist

The theme of the 2008 members’ exhibition examines book and related arts that have a playful, game-like, and/or interactive characteristic. The work can be whimsical and/or conceptual in nature although functional and/or activated aspects to the work should be of equal importance. Artworks featured in this exhibition shall represent a broad range of book and related arts, including but not limited to prints, books, sculptures, mix-media installation, film & video, and performance art.
