The book, like art, represents our desire to document, communicate and understand the details of human existence. Increasingly, contemporary artists have been exploring the function, structure, and content of the book to create new relationships and interpretations - altering our conception of what the book can be. Unbound Narrative looks at the work of nine contemporary artists who utilize the book as medium and inspiration to create their visual narrative.
Artists in the exhibition include:
James Allen (Portland, OR), Doug Beube (New York, NY), Andrew Hayes (Penland, NC), Guy Laramée (Montreal, Canada), Math Monahan (Boston, MA), Tom Phillips (London, England), Susan Porteous (Bend, OR), Diana Fonseca Quiñones (Havana, Cuba) and Tim Rollins and K.O.S (New York, NY). Lenders to the exhibition: Laura Russo Gallery; JHB Gallery; Flowers Gallery, Sean Kelly Gallery, Lehmann Maupin and Private Collection, NY

Examining the history of the humble flour sack, Art From Flour: Barrel to Bag illustrates how a food staple became a reflection of art and life in America. Through the efforts of creative citizens, designers and American resourcefulness, this everyday object has been transformed into examples of grass roots design through necessity and ultimately into a unique art form that reveals our history and shared visual culture. Guest curated by Edward Irvine, associate professor of studio art in the UNC Wilmington department of Art & Art History.
