22 May – 1 August 2021 | Foyer Gallery | The idea of a book as an art object evolved in the mid-20th Century when artists began experimenting with the book format as a means to express their ideas. This touring exhibition from the Print Council of Aotearoa New Zealand (PCANZ) sees printmakers from throughout Aotearoa, including eight artists from Hawke’s Bay, expand on and explore the idea of the artist book by taking the concept of a book further, creating art objects inspired by the form and/or function of a book. This idea has been approached using a range of techniques and materials which extend beyond the realm of traditional printmaking.
