UnBound Narrative August 13, 2016 to January 15, 2017

Cameron Art Museum presents UnBound Narrative, an exhibition featuring nine contemporary artists from across the globe (United States, Canada, England and Cuba) who utilize the book as medium and inspiration to create their visual narrative. This exhibition will be on view from August 13, 2016 through January 15, 2017.
The book, like art, represents our desire to document, communicate, and understand the depths 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. The forty diverse artworks in the exhibition (including 100 pages from three different versions of Tom Phillips’ groundbreaking project A Humument) show how varied the medium can be.
The exhibition features work by 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).
UnBound Narrative is organized by Holly Tripman Fitzgerald, Chief Curator and Bob Unchester, Curator of Exhibitions.
CAM will offer an array of exhibition-related programming, including our monthly Kids @ CAM, youth classes, adult workshops, engaging lectures and gallery talks.
