Call for Proposals, Papers and Presentations

French explorers put New Orleans where it is because indigenous people showed them a bayou connecting Lake Pontchartrain to the Mississippi River, an intersection of sorts, granting quick access to the Gulf. Three hundred years later, new paths cross on our long-traversed landscape. Arising from the muck of both a distant and all-too-proximal history of social injustice is a community aware of economic, racial, and gender disparities, who celebrates in creative ways, mixes art with social activism, loves beautiful things, and always says hello. What better place to expand the discussion of book arts and foster an inclusive field that embraces a variety of education models, as well as ideas that come from all races, classes, genders, and levels of education? We now invite you to the neutral ground of New Orleans, to our many stately university archives and our ground-up book arts collectives and printshops, to discuss the “Intersections” of present-day book arts: where we’ve been, where we’re going, and whose paths are crossing now.

Intersections: CBAA 2020 will take place January 2-4, 2020 in New Orleans, LA. To approach the theme of intersections, we invite artists, students and professionals, educators of all kinds, community activists, academics, and organizers to address the ways that book arts has engaged with and can intersect with themes of inclusion, intersectionality, expansion, accessibility, and equity.  We are hopeful that this conference will act as a site to bring together communities and generate new conversation about book arts as a field.

Presentations on artist books that address these themes, contextualizations of book arts within these realms, or wide-ranging proposals that address the art of the book—its history, successes and failures, and paths for the future, are encouraged.

In addition to current members, we extend the invitation for paper and panel submissions to people and groups who may not have previously been involved with the College Book Art Association. Centers for art that work within communities, zine artists and printmakers, emerging artists and educators, book arts MFA students and academics, researchers and historians, librarians, bibliophiles, and makers of any stripe with a vested interest in the art of the book, are all welcome to apply. Membership is not a requirement to submit a proposal. If selected, all presenters must be members of CBAA by the date given below for panel confirmations. 

In addition to the academic tradition of the CBAA, this year’s conference in New Orleans celebrates the non-traditional, the outsider/outlier, the expression of our culture in our lives and in our artwork. Proposals that address expansive methods of making; the intersections of book arts with other areas of art, communities, or histories; and the methods it uses to engage with its readers/viewers, be that through book structure, exhibition, or teaching, are strongly encouraged. Proposals that take a creative look at the traditional panelist format will also be especially considered. 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES 

We ask that you fit your proposal into one of 5 categories. There are 3 category options for panel and group proposals, and 2 category options for individual proposals. This is the group proposal form. Categories are described in detail below:

Intersections: Book Arts as Convergence

College Book Art Association Members’ Juried Exhibition

Carroll Gallery, Newcomb Art Department, Tulane University

January 2 – Feb. 6, 2020


Submission Deadline: August 16, 2019


The desire to go home that is a desire to be whole, to know where you are, to be the point of intersection of all the lines drawn through all the stars, to be the constellation-maker and the center of the world, that center called love. To awaken from sleep, to rest from awakening, to tame the animal, to let the soul go wild, to shelter in darkness and blaze with light, to cease to speak and be perfectly understood.

-Rebecca Solnit


CALL FOR ENTRIES

College Book Art Association Members are invited to submit work to Intersections: Book Arts as Convergence. This exhibition seeks to explore areas of convergence, diversity, inclusion and intersectionality through the Book Arts. The CBAA conference itself is an intersection of many diverse voices and approaches, with a rich variety of cultures, individuals and institutions represented. In addition to the academic tradition of the CBAA, this year’s conference in New Orleans celebrates the non-traditional, the outsider/outlier, the expression of our culture in our lives and in our artwork. Whether it is an exploration of the intersection of text and image, structure and content, or artist and viewer, through exhibiting these works, we celebrate the crossroads, overlaps, conversations, and potential for shared experience and expansion.

Submissions should explore the boundaries of the book using a wide interpretation. These include, but are not limited to: artist’s books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, broadsides or book works that involve digital media, performance, or installation.

Works will be displayed on open shelves and pedestals, and viewers will be invited to carefully handle the books with clean, dry hands. Wet wipes and dry towels will be provided. Food and drink will not be allowed near the artwork.

The juried book arts exhibition occurs during the 2020 CBAA Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. All practicing book artists, regular members and student members of CBAA are welcome to submit work. All entrants must be active members of CBAA; the membership fee may be paid with the entry fee.


JURORS

Multimedia artist Lee Deigaard lives and works in New Orleans and rural Georgia.  Her work investigates sensory processing, nonverbal communication, and the ways our bodies intersect with our environment, as well as the boundaries and thresholds of shared experience. She graduated from Yale University and holds graduate degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Michigan. A member of the New Orleans artist collective The Front since 2010, she curated the group shows Calamity Jane, Latin for Crab, Enscribe, Standing Heat, and PhotoBomb among several others. She has taught courses in the history and practice of curation, sculpture, photography, drawing, literature, and writing most recently at Tulane, University of New Orleans, and Loyola. Deigaard exhibits and presents her work nationally and internationally. She has had solo shows at the Ogden Museum and the Contemporary Arts Center and been recognized with an artist residency at the Joan Mitchell Center.

Bob Snead is a native of Charleston, SC where he founded Redux Contemporary Art Center in 2002 and remained founding director of the organization until 2005, when he left to pursue graduate studies at Yale University School of Art. After receiving his MFA in 2007, he helped form the traveling artist collective Transit Antenna and spent the next two years developing community-based art projects across North America. Since 2010, he has lived and worked in New Orleans, continuing a rigorous studio practice as well as helping grow Antenna in various capacities as Executive Director, where he founded Paper Machine, a center for creator-driven publishing, as well as the Platforms Fund, a granting program for community focused art projects. His work has been featured in group and solo exhibitions across the country, and you can see his artistic practice in process on the PBS series, Art Assignment.


ELIGIBILITY

Submissions by CBAA members are welcomed in any medium, any style. Wall-hung work must be ready-to-hang. Performance and/or installation art will also be considered.
