The Un(framed) Photograph features the work of CBA's artist-members and other invited artists whose work focuses on how the art of photography, the photographic process, and related media, such as video stills, are used to convey content, form, text, and image within a broader context of book arts practices. Artworks featured in this exhibition represent a broad range of book and related arts, including but not limited to books, prints, sculpture, mixed-media installation, new media, and performance art.
Offering an overview of the history and development of book arts over the past 40 years, Multiple, Limited, Unique examines the role of the Center in both nurturing and promoting innovative artists and preserving traditional artistic practices. These works are now available to the public through a freely accessible online collections database .
