Art to Read is a book-centric exhibition co-curated by Jessica Hoffman and Short Run Seattle co-directors Eroyn Franklin and Kelly Froh.
The exhibition will feature an interactive imagination hut, complete with pockets of books created by Short Run Comix and Arts Festival exhibitors and a vinyl window installation. The main gallery space will be dedicated to experimental, sculptural, and interactive book works by comic artists Taylor Dow, Michael Heck, Robyn Jordan, Mita Mahato, and Alexandria Vickery and book artists Jessica Hoffman, Yuka Petz, and Martine Workman. The conversation between the two spaces of the gallery, featuring many ways to read, view, and interact with books, highlights the versatility, accessibility, and experimental nature of the book as an art medium.
This exhibition coincides with the 2017 Short Run Comix and Arts Festival taking place November 4th at the Seattle Center’s Fisher Pavilion.
