February 4 – April 18, 2020
The Northern Arizona University Art Museum announces a juried exhibition to be mounted in the Spring of 2020. Open from February 4 until April 18, the exhibition, titled “May You Live in Interesting Times,” will present new works conceived within the conceptual category of the Book as Art, including Altered Books. The Museum invites submissions on significant themes derived from the issues we face here and around the world, including, but not limited to, environmental challenges, politics, immigration, race, and nationalism.
Our 2020 exhibition will embrace widely varying conceptions of the “book” created in an equally diverse range of media. The Museum is producing this event in the firm belief that, in the age of virtual media, there is still a profoundly powerful effect to be drawn from prolonged interaction with a physical artifact in a “screen-free” environment.
This exhibition will be featuring Lisa C. Tremaine as the guest co-juror, working with Dr. George Speer, Director of the NAU Art Museum. Lisa Tremaine is a Vermont native and happy Texas transplant of 15 years. She is the Director and Designer at Texas Review Press in Huntsville, a photographer, painter, and artist book maker and holds a Master’s degree from the University of New Mexico.
