Call for Artists - Banned book in Australia exhibition

Banned Book in Australia exhibition – call for artists

Art in the Library welcomes expressions of interest from Artists to be involved with an exhibition entitled Banned Book in Australia. We invite artists to create/submit artwork inspired by Melbourne’s long history of banning books (both Australian and imported books), covering past and modern literature emphasising the transience of social norms and community values.

The exhibition hopes to highlight the complexity of the state’s role in policing the boundaries of acceptable and unacceptable publications, and how Australian publishers have deliberately challenged the authorities. The exhibition will incorporate books from the University of Melbourne collections and State Library of Victoria as well as artists representations of this theme.

This exhibition will coincide with the Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand’s Annual Conference for 2010 titled ‘To deprave and corrupt: Forbidden, Hidden and Censored Texts’ to be held at the State Library of Victoria.

A complimentary exhibition will also be held at Monash University.

Exhibition Dates: 1 June – 23 August 2010
