Looking Out/Looking In: A Philadelphia Center for the Book Virtual Members’ Exhibition

A hybrid exhibition in partnership with Swarthmore College Libraries.
Deadline to submit: August 31, 2021

We as artists frequently find that our subject matter or art making process begins either in introspection or in our interest in/passion about the world outside us. Members are invited to submit up to three works that in some way reflect either mindset.

Work is not limited to books and book objects. Any work by members that reflects the topic of the exhibition is welcome.

This year’s exhibition will be hybrid. All accepted works will be featured on our online exhibition. The artist books, book objects, and possibly a few other pieces will also be installed at Swarthmore’s McCabe Library. The Philadelphia Center for the Book reserves the right to limit work that does not fit our physical exhibition space to the online exhibition only.
