      EXHIBITION NEWS
      Not by the Book
      Love and/or Terror Exhibition at UA Museum of Art

      Triggered by the events and repercussions of 9/11, the University of Arizona
      Museum of Art invited fifty artists to respond to the subjects of love
      and/or terror in the form of a book. These amazing artists' book will be on
      view at the UA Museum of Art from August 3 - September 21, 2003.

      Artists often assume the role of challenging commercial and conventional
      forms of expression. The artists in the Love and/or Terror exhibition
      experiment with our notions of what a book is. These books are made with
      unexpected materials from handmade papers to feathers and fish scales. They
      are not standard storybooks sandwiched between covers. There are flipbooks,
      round books, books that stretch accordion-like for many feet and books that
      are paperless. There are books without words, and books with one word. There
      are books that do not open and books that do not end.

      How these books are made and the stories they tell overlap. There are
      intricately folded books about love and loss, digitized books about memory
      and distance, hand-knitted books about the weather in Minnesota,
      photographic books about biblical text,and flip books about kisses and
      winks.

      Visit the UA Museum of Art and spend some time with these artists' books
      that are definitely not by the book!
