Call Type: Exhibitions

Entry Deadline: 9/1/19
For their inaugural exhibition of 2020, San Francisco Center for the Book invites artists
to interpret the past, consider the future, and reflect upon where we are going. A juried
exhibition, (retro)(intro)spection will showcase artists books which look backward, inward, outward, and forward in a variety of ways.
When do our amorphous ideas become real, at what point? What is the role of introspection and one’s personal past when applied to artists books? In the act of looking back as well as in, the curators hope that artists will be inspired by their body of work, regarding the path or discovering the throughline that brings them to the present, creating work to speak not only to future audiences, but also to subsequent generations.
