Professor Inge Bruggeman from the University of Nevada, Reno Department of Art and Director of the Black Rock Press has curated Expanded Readings: The Book to Come to follow the 2017 Codex Foundation Book Fair in San Francisco.

The exhibition explores the book as art and the book as a site for artistic exploration. Bruggeman writes, "the act of reading is an inherently interactive and performative gesture. The reader comes into contact with a physical, material object that is consumed, interpreted, embodied, and reenacted by all of our senses."

This exhibit about innovative books will be available for viewing through March 17, 2017.

This program is funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
