A Book In a Bag …

Create and exhibit a piece of art inspired by A Book In A Bag.

Books in Bags will be assigned randomly to the artists when they register for the show. You may receive a children’s book in a high fashion bag, or a science textbook in a record shop sleeve, or an encyclopedia in a paper bag… It really is a lucky dip. Your task then, is to take this book and bag to create an artwork. You might use the theme and ideas of the book as your inspiration for an artwork or you might make a work out of the book itself. Materials and media are entirely up to the you…

Artists will have 4 months to create the artwork.  
Guests to the opening night will be able to cast votes for a Popular Choice Prize, 
which will be awarded at the opening night celebrations.
