Posted by: University Libraries, University of South Dakota
Deadline: Fri, March 5th, 2021
International juried altered book exhibition at the University Libraries, University of South Dakota and hosted by the Art and Exhibits Committee: AUGUST 23, 2021 - JANUARY 3, 2022. JUROR: Melissa Stern is an artist, professor, and journalist living in NYC. She has worked in sculpture, photography, and drawing for over 30 years, exhibiting throughout the U.S., as well as Europe and Asia. Starting in 2012, her multi-media installation exhibition, The Talking Cure, has traveled to museums around the States, and will open at the Fuller Museum of Art in 2021. Her work is featured in a number of prominent corporate and museum collections, including: News Corporation, JP Morgan/Chase, Arkansas Art Center, American Museum of Ceramic Art, Racine Art Museum, International Center for Collage, Bucknell University, Library of Congress: Rare Books and Special Collections, Museum of Art and Design, Arario Gallery, and the Weisman Art Museum. With a background in anthropology, Stern’s work reflects both non-Western and outsider-art influences. Her drawings, collages, and figurative sculptures are richly drawn and deeply layered, with quirky, often dark humor. Stern has taught and lectured throughout the New York area, including the School of Visual Arts, Parsons School of Design, and NYU. She was the lead art critic for New York Press and City Arts from 2006-2014 and is currently a contributing writer for Hyperallergic, Romanov Grave, and Vasari 21. SPECIFICATIONS: All work must be original, executed within the last three years, and not previously displayed in a Bound and Unbound exhibition. SUBMISSION: Entry is open to all.
