Dear Miniature Book Society- We would appreciate it if you could distribute this invitation to your membership.
The United States Embassy in Baku,
Azerbaijan has invited us to curate an exhibition of Miniature Artists'
Books by American Artists.
The exhibition will be an official part of the Baku Biennial opening
December 11, 2009. The U.S. exhibit will be held in the “Museum Center” which
is the main museum on the waterfront in downtown Baku – This
is one of the central places for work by Biennial participants to be
displayed. A small catalog will be printed in Azerbaijani and
English to accompany the exhibition.
We plan to include 50 small=2
0books. We would like to exhibit books that
could be donated at the exhibition's close and become a permanent part of the
Azerbaijan Museum’s collection. Please feel free to share this email with
artist friends who may be creating appropriate book-works.
Books must be no larger than 3 or 4 inches in any one dimension. Books
can be “one of a kind” or part of a limited edition. We have a small budget but will be able to give each artists
selected for the exhibition $100.
If you are interested in participating,
please email us a description of
miniature book or books that you would like to exhibit, and please
include a few
jpegs of each book. All images must be received through
email by October 15.
Sue and Robert
