The 2010 Libris Awards: Australian Artists’ Books Prize Exhibition
The Libris Awards are Australia’s premier national artists’ book prize, bringing together the best artists’ books from around Australia.
An initiative of the Mackay Regional Council through Artspace Mackay, these biennial awards seek to develop awareness of the Council’s significant collection of artists’ books and to develop the collection further through the acquisition of new works by leading Australian artists working in this field.
Assimilated Rhythm No. 4 Blint Trembuckey: Deanna Hitti
Winner of the 2008 Libris Awards, Deanna Hitti, presents an exhibition of recent works in the Mackay Mazda Foyer, Artspace Mackay. As a child of Lebanese parents who migrated to Australia, Deanna Hitti has developed a strong interest in comprehending the diverse cultural traditions amongst the varied population in Australia. Assimilated Rhythm No. 4 Blint Trembuckey combines collograph printing and watercolour to create a large music score with Arabic and English text. The images form a rhythmic palimpsest of Arabic and Western words, generating a lyrical flow of pattern and thought.
Deanna Hitti will present a free exhibition floor talk on Monday 12 April, from 11am at Artspace Mackay.
